Alleged robber strikes three times in three days

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The third time is the charm for an armed bank robber who hit again this morning.

Police are calling it an unusual case.

Veteran police officers say it's rare that a robber hits the same place twice, but this suspect did -- and not only that, he is accused of three holdups in three days.

The suspect is described as a being bald, 30 to 40 years old, 5'-8" to 5'-10" and weighing approximately 170-180 pounds.

Police say he robbed the U.S. Bank on Preston Highway Tuesday, and then again on Wednesday. And at around 7:30 Thursday morning, he allegedly hit the Speedway at the corner of Bardstown Road and Grinstead Drive.

Police say the suspect demanded money while holding a gun, and got away with cash.

Detectives consider this man to be very dangerous.

"Anytime that they display a handgun like that, there's always potential for it to escalate, and there to be some violence, so we're very concerned about the public's safety at this point," said Lt. Jennifer Coe of the Louisville Metro Police.

If you have any info, you area asked to call the tip line at 574-LMPD.

Police say no one was injured during the holdups, but they say it's likely he will hit again.
