Kenner - The Kenner Police Department is presently on scene of a bank robbery that occurred at the Whitney National Bank, located at 2609 Veterans Boulevard, in Kenner. 

At approximately 4:57 p.m., a white male, described to be 50 to 60 years old, wearing blue jeans, white tennis shoes, sun glasses, blue cap, and light green shirt, entered Whitney bank and handed the teller a note announcing the robbery.  The victim teller complied and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money.  The white male then fled the location on foot.  It is unknown if he was driving a vehicle.
