AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police responded to a bank robbery in south Austin Friday morning.
The robbery call came in at 9:22 a.m. at the Chase Bank located at 701 East Stassney Ln., which is just west of Interstate 35.
Austin police say a woman came into the bank wearing a ski mask, demanded money and then brandished a handgun. The suspect got away in a car but a witness followed her and was able to relay the information to officers who arrested her about 2 miles away.
This is the second bank robbery this week in south Austin. On Wednesday, a man donning a Longhorns cap robbed the Wells Fargo Bank along East Ben White Boulevard near I-35. Police are still searching for the suspect in the case.
