Springfield Police are investigating a bank robbery that took place around 9:00 Thursday morning.
Deputy Police Chief Cliff Buscher says that a black man wearing a black hat and jogging pants with a red stripe entered the US Bank on South 6th Street near County Market and demanded money while brandishing a silver handgun.
Buscher says the robber fled on foot through the County Market parking lot and fled the scene south on 6th street. Police say the man is driving a cream colored four door Toyota Corolla.
Detectives are still trying to piece it together.
