Man in skull mask, gloves robs Oklahoma City bank

OKLAHOMA CITY — Special Agent-in-Charge James E. Finch of the Oklahoma City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced the robbery of the Bank of Oklahoma branch located at 2601 N. Meridian in Oklahoma City.

According to the report, shortly after 4 p.m. Friday, a man wearing a skull mask entered the bank and approached the teller counter. The subject interrupted a transaction with a customer and verbally demanded money from the teller.

The teller complied and the man put an undisclosed amount of money in his clothing. The man then left the bank and was last seen on foot, heading north. No weapon was observed or implied, and no one was injured in the robbery.

The subject is described as a black male, 300 pounds, 6-foot-2, wearing a gray sweatshirt, orange safety vest similar to a construction worker’s, an orange head covering, a skull face mask and skeleton hand gloves. He may also be responsible for two previous metro area bank robberies earlier this year, according to the report.

The Oklahoma City Police Department and the FBI are investigating the robbery. Anyone with information is requested to contact the FBI at their 24-hour number, 290-7770 . Callers may remain anonymous. The Oklahoma Bankers Association offers a reward of up to $2,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone responsible for robbing a member bank.
