REIDSVILLE, N.C. — A man was arrested in Reidsville after allegedly robbing a bank Tuesday afternoon, according to a news release from Reidsville police.

Kendrick Hart, 29, of Reidsville, is charged with armed robbery.

The robbery happened at the American Partners Federal Credit Union, located at 618 N. Scales St., around 4 p.m.

“The suspect walked into the bank holding a large stick, yelled, ‘This is a robbery,’ then jumped over the counter and proceeded to steal an unknown amount of money,” Reidsville police said in the release.

About five minutes after the robbery, Hart was stopped in the parking lot of Rob and Ray’s Grocery by a sheriff’s deputy, the release said.
