Police said the bank manager called at 10:31 a.m. yesterday to report the latest robbery.

The robber showed that he had a handgun. He wore a blue hat, surgical mask, a white T-shirt and cargo pants.

A teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash to the man, who left the bank on foot and was last seen heading toward Ward Avenue.

The same branch was robbed on Feb. 11 and Feb. 16.
