Past Robbery Attempts
This is the fourth time Freedom Financial has been targeted by robbers in the last two years, according to police.
In an incident in August 2012, an employee of the credit union was approached by two men at her home, held captive and forced inside the bank to get cash for the suspects.
In April 2012, a man came up behind a woman and forced her inside the bank. Police said the man was upset that no cash was available and struck the woman in the head several times with a hard object. The woman was taken to the hospital in fair condition.
In December of 2011, three men robbed the credit union at gunpoint and demanded cash. All three fled the bank with some cash. No customers were in the bank at the time and no one was hurt.
In November of 2011 , a man stopped a robbery attempt and helped police locate the suspect after he fled the scene. The man didn't get away with anything and was later located by police and arrested.
