        Cincinnati police are searching for a Westwood man in connection with the armed robbery Saturday morning of the Firstar Bank on Harrison Avenue.

        Police have issued a warrant for Kendall Self, 31, of the 3300 block of Werk Road, on aggravated robbery and auto theft charges.

        A man wearing a green hooded sweat shirt and dark pants entered the bank, at 3186 Harrison Ave., at 10:51 a.m. and demanded money, police said. The robber told bank employees that he had a weapon, but didn't display one.

        No one was injured, police said.

        The suspect fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a vehicle traveling east on Verdin Avenue. The vehicle was described as a 1994 maroon Ford Probe two-door with a tinted rear license plate cover, rear-deck spoiler and a “Probe” decal at the bottom of each door.

        Saturday's robbery was the 42nd this year in Southwest Ohio. Another five have been committed this year in Northern Kentucky.

        Police are asking anyone with information to call the Cincinnati Police Division at 352-3542 or Crimestoppers at 352-3040. Callers may remain anonymous and receive compensation.
