FBI Investigating Bank Robbery In Calhoun Square

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minneapolis FBI officials are investigating after a bank was robbed in Calhoun Square on Thursday.

Authorities said the incident happened at about 4:27 p.m. at the Bremer Bank on the 3000 block of Hennepin Avenue. A robber, who did not display a weapon, approached a bank teller and demanded cash. He got an undisclosed amount of money and then fled on foot.

The suspect is described as a white male with a tan or a ruddy complexion, about 6 feet tall with a small mustache and is about 40 years old. He wore a grey stalking cap and glasses. He also wore a grey sweatshirt during the robbery, but it’s believed he took it off after the robbery. He then was believed to have changed into a blue polo shirt.

Earlier this week, the TCF Bank on Lake Street was robbed twice in two days by a man who looks very similar to the Bremer Bank robber in surveillance photos. It is not yet known if these incidents are related.

Anyone with information about the incident or who can identify the suspect is asked to call the Minneapolis FBI at (612) 376-3200 or Minneapolis Police at (612) 673-5705.

    A gray “stalking” cap?? He was stalking, too??? I would think he would be wearing a “bank robbing” cap!

  • Smile for the Camera

    Yes, apperantly “stalking” caps are made of latex and come in a foil packet. I can’t imagine that there is any connection with the similarity to the other bank robberies. The stalking cap is the new vogue, chic bank robber look.

    The whole Duck/Dog thing was apparently not an aberration was it? Do you employ any editors? Does the writer of this story know the difference between “stalking” and “stocking?”

    Also, I would like to add this factoid for you… The FBI investigating a Bank Robbery is not news, they investigate ALL of them. The fact that there was yet another bank robbery, now that’s news. Perhaps you should employ some real reporters and go out and get some reasons as to the “why.”
