GRAFTON (WITI) — Grafton police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred at the U.S. Bank branch located in the 2300 block of Washington Street that occurred on Monday, April 15th.
The robbery occurred around 5:00 p.m. Monday.
Officials say the victim, Deonte Antonine Jones and his girlfriend Alexis Hurley-Johnson, reportedly drove from Sheboygan to the Grafton U.S. Bank to cash his federal tax return check for $5,000.00. Jones’s girlfriend, Hurley-Johnson, made arrangements with an acquaintance to meet her at the U.S. Bank parking lot to pay her rent.
Jones cashed the check and when he walked outside, the suspect, who had accompanied the acquaintance of Hurley-Johnson, pulled a handgun from his sweatshirt and demanded the $5,000.00. The suspect, and the acquaintance of Hurley-Johnson, then left the U.S. Bank, driving what was described as an Oldsmobile SUV, green in color with silver rims.
