HOLLAND, Mich. (WOOD) — Police in Holland are looking for two possible suspects involved in a robbery Friday night.

Holland Department of Public Safety officers were called to the Macatawa Bank located on 699 E. 16th Street after a 21-year-old Holland woman said she was robbed while making a night deposit at the bank.

The victim told police she was approached by a man who was wearing a bandana covering his face around 10:55 p.m. The suspect grabbed the money bag out of the deposit box and took off on foot heading northeast.

A K-9 unit was brought in and was able to track the suspect to a nearby apartment complex where the track was lost.

The suspect was described as a black man, approximately 6 feet tall wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt and tan pants.

No weapon was seen or implied during the robbery and the victim was not hurt, according to police.

Surveillance video from the bank also shows a second man arriving at the same time as the suspect. Police believe he may be a possible accomplice in the robbery.

Anyone who has information about this case is urged to contact the Holland Department of Public Safety at 616.355.1100 or the detectives at 616.355.1150. If you would like to remain anonymous, call Silent Observer at 1.877.887.4536.
