Woman robbed at gunpoint at local bank

Posted:
WACO - Waco police are investigating an armed robbery in front of a local bank.

An Alon convenience store employee was robbed at gunpoint while trying to make a deposit at the Central National Bank, located in the 5400 block of Bosque Boulevard. The woman worked at the store located on 25th Street and Waco Drive.

The woman told police a man with a handgun pushed her to the ground, then took the bags of money and jumped into a blue 4-door car that drove away, headed east on Bosque. The woman didn't have any specific description of the car.

Waco police say they arrived within seconds, but the suspects were already gone. The victim was shaken up after the incident, but only suffered minor scrapes.

The victim says the man who robbed her was a 5'4" tall black man, and he was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt at the time of the robbery. The victim was unable to provide a description of the driver. The robbers are believed to have gotten away with $1,000-$2,000.

Police are considering the possibility the woman may have been followed from the store to the bank. So far, no arrests have been made.
