No updates on Wednesday bank robbery

Police looking for suspect

ROCK FALLS – Police would not release any more information Thursday about a bank robbery the day before until they have a suspect in custody.

Rock Falls Police Commander Tammy Nelson did say that police have received tips from the community, and she encouraged people with information to call Rock Falls Police at 815-622-1140 or Crime Stoppers at 877-625-7867.

Police say that shortly after 1 p.m. Wednesday, a man who was described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 7 inches tall, in his 30s or 40s, with a mustache, entered First Federal Savings Bank, 701 First Ave., and took an undisclosed sum of money. He was wearing a denim baseball cap, a gray Chicago Bears sweatshirt, and blue jeans.

FBI agents were investigating the robbery late Wednesday afternoon, said Dena Slechta, the bank’s senior vice president.
