UPDATE: Police Respond to Armed Robbery at PNC Bank
Little is known at this point, but police have confirmed an armed robbery occurred at the location.
A second armed robbery in a week has occured in Falls.
According to Menomonee Falls Police Capt. Mark Waters, there was an armed robbery at the bank at 3:28 p.m. Friday.
Waters said two black males entered the bank and implied that they had a weapon. Both men had their faces covered with handkerchiefs. The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot toward Lime Kiln Park.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation overheard Falls radio traffic and assisted with the call. Investigators are currently reviewing surveillance footage from the bank, but the suspects remain at large.
Witnesses in the area were told to stay in their homes, and armed officers patrolled the area near Lime Kiln Park, Appleton Avenue, and Mill Street.
A witness driving by said several squad cars were parked and officers had guns drawn along Appleton Avenue.
As of 4 p.m. Friday, police were still searching for suspects in the immediate area.
On Thursday, police responded to an armed robbery at Petro Mart just a few blocks away from PNC Bank. Police are still searching for that suspect. Waters said there's no indication that there's any connection between the PNC Bank robbery and Thursday's robbery.
