Kinston Police say they responded to a call for an armed robbery on Tuesday, January 14 at approximately 5:44 p.m. at the Little Bank, on 1101 West Vernon Ave.

The robbery happened outside the bank when an employee of the Salvation Army Thrift Store was attempting to drop off the night's deposit.

The victim told Kinston Police the suspect was armed with a handgun and demanded the money bag. The suspect was described as a black male, wearing a black hooded sweat shirt, dark blue jeans and a black ski mask.

The victim gave the money to the suspect, who then left the scene on foot. No one was injured during the robbery. Kinston Police say it is still under investigation.
