A Tuesday morning bank robbery in Carthage was Cincinnati's ninth of the year.
A white man about 45 to 50 years old and wearing a tan or beige baseball hat walked into the Winton Savings & Loan a little after 9 a.m. He escaped with an undisclosed amount of money and fled on foot north on Vine Street. He might have gotten into a vehicle north of the bank, Cincinnati police said.
His description resembles that of a man who robbed another Winton Savings & Loan branch Aug. 5 in Springfield Township.
Tuesday, the man's hat bore a red emblem. He also was wearing a tan or beige jacket and blue jeans.
This year's nine bank robberies compare to 32 in all of 2002 and 63 in 2001.
