A man armed with a weapon robbed an Overland Park bank on Friday afternoon, federal authorities said.
The suspect entered the Capitol Federal Savings Bank at 9100 Santa Fe at about 5:34 p.m., displayed a weapon and demanded money, according to an FBI spokeswoman. The man ran from the bank after receiving money and headed southbound on foot. No injuries were reported.
Witnesses described the suspect as about five-foot-six with a medium build, wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt, beige face mask, beige shoes and dark pants.
