Man robs Geneva bank Saturday morning

GENEVA — Police are searching for a man who made off with an undetermined amount of money at the KeyBank located at 21 S. Broadway at 11:52 a.m. Saturday, according to a Geneva Police Department incident report.

“(A) male walked in the bank while clerks were in the vault, jumped the counter and entered the vault, took money and left,” the incident report states.

The report indicates the bank tellers did not know which way he went or whether he had a vehicle or not. Bank personnel said they did not see any weapons.

Witnesses said the alleged robber was a black male wearing black pants, a black jacket and a black hat and had stocky shoulders, according to the report.

The money taken was apparently placed in an orange KeyBank bag.

Reports indicate the Geneva-on-the-Lake Police Department was notified of the incident and the Ohio State Highway Patrol heard scanner traffic and was on the look out for the suspect.

At 12:26 p.m. a potential suspect was interviewed at a restaurant on S. Broadway, but did not match the suspect’s description.

Geneva Police Department representatives said they were releasing no further information on the incident during a visit to the police station Saturday evening.
