Robbery at a Fidelity Bank in Wichita is its second in a month. Police, FBI investigate

Update, 5:30 p.m.:

The FBI has released a description of the man who robbed a Fidelity Bank in northeast Wichita Wednesday afternoon.

The FBI described the suspect as a white man in his late 20s to early 30s, about 6-foot-1, weighing about 180 pounds and of average build. He was wearing all black, including a black hooded jacket and black gloves. He also wore brown face paint.

The man gave a bank teller a note demanding money and threatened that he had a weapon, though he did not show a weapon, FBI spokeswoman Bridget Patton said in a news release. The man ran away with an undisclosed amount of money.

The Fidelity Bank branch that was robbed, at 2111 N. Bradley Fair Parkway, is the same bank that was robbed exactly a month ago, on Sept. 16.
