Around 10:30AM, Eastern Bank on Main Street in Kingston was robbed.

Newly appointed Kingston Police Chief Maurice Splaine says a man entered the bank, handed a note to one of the bank tellers saying he wanted cash and had a gun, he then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount.

The robbery suspect is described as a white male in his late 20′s or early 30′s.

No weapon was ever shown and no one was hurt.

But the man has a distinct tattoo that’s helping police zero in on the suspect though Chief Splaine says they’re unsure what the tattoo represents, “Everybody that’s looked at it has thought it represented something different so it’s just a tattoo that’s on the hand. It’s kind of hard to describe.”

Because of the description of the robbery suspect, police believe that he may be the same white male who also robbed a bank in Plymouth last week.

No arrests have been made. The investigation is ongoing.
