Willow Park bank robbed

The Willow Park branch of BBVA Compass Bank was robbed yesterday.

Police said that shortly after 2 p.m. a black male, through a note and conversation, claimed to be armed and demanded money. He received an undisclosed amount of cash and fled northbound.

Aledo schools in the vicinity and day cares went on lockdown. Through video from a nearby business, it appears the suspect was picked up behind the bank in a vehicle driven by an accomplice.

The FBI is involved in the ongoing investigation.
