Rockford Police, FBI Arrest One Man for Two Bank Robberies

Latest robbery was of Associated Bank on Tuesday

ROCKFORD - Rockford Police and the FBI have made an arrest in the robbery of an Associated Bank in Rockford last Tuesday, a man they suspect also robbed a Midwest Community Bank in Rockford back in August.

Rockford police were called to the Associated Bank on Tuesday after it was robbed just after 3pm.  They say that a light-skinned black male wearing a hooded jacket, black sunglasses and a white dust mask approached a teller and passed a note saying that this was a robbery.  He then escaped with cash.

At the time of the robbery, 63-year-old Albert K. Stallworth of Montana Rd. in Rockford had been identified as the prime suspect in the robbery of the Midwest Community Bank at 3953 N. Perryville Rd. on August 25th. In fact, according to the criminal complaint, on the same day of the Associated Bank robbery, Rockford Police Detectives had completed a photo lineup where a teller from the Midwest Bank identified Stallworth as the robber of that bank.

After a relative of Stallworth's also identified him from bank surveillance photos, he was taken into custody and arraigned Friday morning in federal court, where he was ordered held until a detention hearing on January 17th.
