Girl Spots Suspect In SF Bank Robbery



Bookmark and Share

Police say the man who robbed a bank at gunpoint when it opened Monday morning is still on the run.

The suspect followed a bank employee into the building just as she was opening for the day, according to officials. There was an unlikely witness at the Great Western Bank on North Sycamore Avenue, moments after the alleged robber made a run for it.  
     
It was a regular summer Monday morning for Molly Duffy. But, when she looked out the windows at Sammie's Daycare, she noticed something different.  
 
"My day care provider, she just pointed out someone just wearing the weirdest of clothes, like he was ready for winter,” said 10-year-old Duffy.

But, Molly recognized the person walking by.

“He walks by just about every day,” said Duffy.  

When she saw the man again, she said it didn’t look like the winter clothes were slowing him down.

“He had a red backpack and he was just wearing a really fuzzy hat. And, he was sprinting like someone was chasing him,” said Duffy.

More details about the suspect come from Sioux Falls Police.

“The only description we have is a black male in his mid 20's, 5'8", and 145 pounds,” said Officer Sam Clemens.

When officers began knocking on doors in the area, Molly shared what she saw.

“We had someone come in and he started asking questions and then I described him perfectly and he said, ‘that's our guy!’” said Duffy.  

Police say the early morning bank robbery in Sioux Falls was strange because of the time of day it happened.

“Most of the bank robberies we have are usually later. Either around noon or later in the evening type of time,” said Clemens.

One girl who noticed something out of the ordinary hopes the information she gave will help track down an alleged bank robber.

“Well we were thinking, 'what is he doing?'” said Duffy.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Sioux Falls Police Department or Crimestoppers.
