Man being sought in weekend armed bank robbery in Lincoln

An armed bank robber remains at large after taking an undisclosed amount of cash from a Lincoln bank.

Lincoln Police Department spokeswoman, Officer Katie Flood, says a man wearing a full-face ski mask with eye slits in it held up a US Bank branch this weekend.

“A man entered through the main door. He had a small handgun in his right hand. He demanded money from two employees. He left with an undisclosed amount of cash,” Flood told Nebraska Radio Network affiliate KLIN.

Flood says police are hopeful that even though he hid behind a mask, a video of the robbery will help in the investigation.

Flood says police also hope the public will provide leads in the case.
