Armed robbery at Huntington Bank on Ohio State’s campus reported in Buckeye Alert

Huntington Bank, located at 235 W. 11th Ave., was robbed by a man with a gun Thursday morning, according to a Buckeye Alert.

The suspect was described as a black man in his mid-30s, standing at about 6 feet tall and wearing a black Adidas jacket, khaki pants and a hat, according to the alert.

The alert, sent shortly before 10 a.m., said the man fled toward High Street.

The incident happened less than two weeks after the same Huntington Bank branch, located on Ohio State’s campus across from Canfield Hall and next to University Flower Shop and Adriatico’s Pizza, was robbed by a suspect with a knife. The suspect in the first robbery was described as a black man between the ages of 20 and 40, reportedly wearing a black-and-white plaid button-down, sunglasses and a black baseball hat with a white logo, according to a University Police release.

There were no injuries reported in that incident, which occurred at about 9:25 a.m. Sept. 14, and an unknown amount of cash was taken, a University Police dispatcher said Sept. 15.

University Police representatives were not available for immediate comment Thursday morning.
