Man Acquitted In Aug. Accused Of Robbing Same Bank

(AP) A man acquitted a month ago of robbing a bank has been arrested in another robbery at the same bank. The man, 35, was accused of robbing Liberty Bank on Tuesday, police say.

The man was acquitted Aug. 21 of robbing the bank last October after employees could not positively identify him during his trial.

In another case, the man faces charges of aggravated assault and aggravated robbery in the beating of an elderly woman inside the downtown post office last fall. Police said he stole the woman's purse and her car.
