Little Rock police respond Tuesday, July 30, 2013, to report of a robbery at the Bank of Little Rock branch on Rodney Parham Road.

A Little Rock bank was robbed at gunpoint Tuesday on Rodney Parham Road near Interstate 430, the second time in about a month a bank in the same area has been targeted.

Police say the gunman entered the Bank of Little Rock at 10901 Rodney Parham Road shortly before 9:30 a.m., pointed a handgun at a teller and demanded cash. The man fled south from the area in a maroon sport utility vehicle. It was last seen traveling on Shackleford Road.

The robber, who got away with an undisclosed amount of money, is described as a black man in his 30s about 6 feet tall. He was wearing a gray jogging suit and a Jamaican hat with fake dreadlocks attached to it, police said.

No shots were fired, and none of the four employees inside was injured. No customers were present.

The latest robbery comes just a little more than a month after a holdup at the U.S. Bank at 10720 N. Rodney Parham Road.

"It's not uncommon to see a bank robbery here in this area," Little Rock Police Department Sgt. Cassandra Davis said at the scene. "It is a high-traffic area. It's one of the main arteries where someone can jump on I-430 from Rodney Parham or Shackleford."

Uncommon my behind!!!! It is a GREAT area to rob a bank! Easy to get away! NOW, what you people SHOULD do is report on how many people actually GET AWAY WITH ROBBING A BANK!!! That would be a short article and might possibly help any would-be robbers know that you ALWAYS get caught when you rob a bank!!
