AUGUSTA — Police said they are making headway in the city’s most recent bank robbery, a holdup at the Bangor Savings Bank on Capitol Street in August.

No one has been arrested in that case and police are still investigating.

“We continue to actively work that case and are making headway,” Augusta Police Detective Sgt. Matthew Clark said Wednesday.

The holdup occurred shortly before 10:30 a.m. Aug. 22 at the Bangor Savings Bank at 77 Capitol St., directly across the street from the Burton M. Cross State Office Building and across Chamberlain Street from the Blaine House, the governor’s home.

The man who demanded money from a teller was described as about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, weighed 130 to 150 pounds and was in his 30s. He was wearing dark sunglasses, blue jeans, a dark gray hooded sweat shirt and a black baseball hat.

The robber, clearly visible in surveillance camera images, had a goatee and was carrying a black duffel bag.

No one was injured in the incident, and the robber escaped with an undisclosed amount of money.
