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.

Most banks don't have a guard of any kind, armed or otherwise. What bank can afford that in this economy?

If he says he has a gun I'm giving him all the other people's money he wants. I'll be praying some clown doesn't do something stupid to cause the robber to shoot me.

Those branches generally do not have guards.

Looks like the robber was wearing the required hoodie. Their work clothes you might say.

Seems to me that all banks DO have the funds to hire security. New construction - all I see is new, brick and mortar bank buildings. When you lend money at 5 - 8% and pay your depositors less than 1/2%, I think that qualifies as VERY profitable.
