A 47-year-old Rockville man has been charged with robbing a bank in Northwest Washington on Friday and getting away with several stacks of $50 and $100 bills, according to D.C. police and documents filed in U.S. District Court.
Leonard B. Forrest, who lives in Rockville, was arrested there shortly after the robbery, according to police, and charged by federal authorities with robbery. He is awaiting an initial appearance in federal court.
Police said the robbery occurred at the PNC Bank in the 7600 block of Georgia Avenue NW when a man wearing an Old Navy sweatshirt walked in and demanded money. He did not display a weapon, they said. Police also said that the man escaped in the passenger seat of a Honda SUV and that a witness provided a description.
The court documents state that members of the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force later stopped a Honda SUV in Rockville and that an Old Navy sweatshirt and money were found inside. The alleged accomplice has not been arrested.
