Police say this man robbed the U.S. Bank located at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road in Little Rock on Tuesday afternoon.

Authorities are looking for a man who robbed a U.S. Bank in Little Rock early Tuesday afternoon.

It happened about 12:30 p.m. at the branch at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road.

A black male walked into the bank shortly after noon and implied he had a weapon, though he did not show one, and demanded money at the counter, Little Rock Police Department Lt. Sidney Allen said. A police spokesman initially said the robber displayed a handgun.

A bank teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of cash, and he ran northeast from the bank.

No one was injured during the robbery, and investigators were still on scene at 1:45 p.m. Authorities were looking at surveillance footage from the bank to come up with a full suspect description, Allen said.

The same bank was held up in June, and Little Rock authorities have investigated several other bank robberies in recent weeks, including a holdup at the U.S. Bank near Park Plaza Mall on Nov. 26.

Roderick Wilbert, 42, was arrested in connection with the June robbery of the U.S. Bank at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road as well as the robbery of a Summit Bank branch two days later.

How many bank held up this year?
More than one each day?

That seems like a lot of crime, and keeps cost the city a lot of payroll, just to give these guys a few days of free room and board.

AT WHAT POINT DO THE SECURITY OFFICERS DO THEIR JOB? OR DO THEY JUST SIT AROUND AND DRINK COFFEE AND EAT DONUTS LIKE REAL COPS?

Another gun free zone....when will the sheep ever learn. The police are not here to protect you from crime. There job is to investigate AFTER the fact. And most banks have unarmed security just for show anyway.baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It's hard to feel sorry for a bank since they definitely have the financial resources to hire an off duty Police officer. I just passed the US Bank in Rose City and there were two Police cars there. It probably just got hit.

When seconds count, the police are only minutes away. Without armed guards banks are sitting ducks for entitlement addicts. The ONLY solution is to fight fire with fire.

Hey BubbaTeve - Totally agree!

If I am going to rob some places, I will look for the NO GUN ALLOWED sign and then just walk right in and take the money. The sign might as well read: HEY CRIMINAL, COME ON IN AND TAKE THE MONEY, AND FEEL FREE TO KILL ONE AND ALL. Don't worry, you will get more prison time for a bud in the ashtray than murder. Isn't that great?
