BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

Bossier City Police have arrested a Shreveport man in connection with the robbery of a Capital One Bank branch in March.

Michael D. Harris, 26, of the 2900 block of Round Grove Lane in Shreveport was arrested Friday evening on a charge of armed robbery following a nearly three-week long investigation by detectives with the Violent Crimes Unit.

Harris was charged for the March 25 armed robbery of the Capital One Bank branch in the 2000 block of Airline Drive. Harris is accused of walking into the bank armed with a gun and demanding money. Police allege that once he got the money Harris ran out of the bank to his car that was parked nearby.

Harris was booked in the Bossier City Jail. Bond has not yet been set.

Video from surveillance cameras show that a man in a gray hoodie with black writing on it, along with a black backpack, came into the bank and pulled out a handgun. They say his face was covered.

Witnesses say the armed robber approached the counter and robbed a customer of money at gunpoint and then demanded money from a teller. The teller complied and the suspect left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

No one was hurt.

In addition to robbing a teller, police say the gunman also robbed a customer of their deposit money before leaving the bank and taking off on foot "in a southwesterly direction."
