Try 3 months for $3

The Davenport Police Department is looking for a man they say robbed a bank Tuesday morning.

At 9:36 a.m. Tuesday, officers responded to Wells Fargo, 1618 Main St., for a report of a robbery.

The man implied he had a weapon and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said. No one was injured.

The suspect is described as a black man approximately 5’9”, 200 pounds last seen wearing a black puffy coat, “skinny” style black sweat pants and black Sketcher shoes having large white soles.

The FBI arrived on scene to assist with the investigation.

As a precaution, Davenport Central High School was placed on lockdown from 9:45 a.m. to 10:05 a.m., Davenport Community School District spokeswoman Dawn Saul said.

All students remained in their classrooms during that time, she said.

Police ask anyone with information to call 563-326-6125 or submit an anonymous tip via the mobile application “CityConnect Davenport , IA.”

This is at least the third bank or credit union robbery reported in Davenport over the last few months. 

At 5:35 p.m. Nov. 23, police were dispatched to DuTrac Community Credit Union, 3100 W. Kimberly Road, where a man wearing a full camouflage mask, green sweatshirt and jeans implied he had a weapon and obtained an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing.

In August, police arrested Randall John Williams, 53, of Davenport, in connection with a robbery at R.I.A. Federal Credit Union, 3509 N. Harrison Street. His case is being tried in federal court.
