Posted: Updated:

The Portsmouth Police Department received a 911 call from an employee at the Westbanco on Gallia Street at 9:44 a.m. Saturday morning.

The employee told the dispatcher that a man wearing a gray hoodie and sunglasses entered the bank and demanded money.

A weapon was not shown but witnesses say the suspect appeared to have a gun inside of the hoodie.

Officers located the suspect, Christopher Dsouza, a few blocks away from the bank on foot.

Some of the stolen money was recovered when Dsouza was taken into custody.

Dsouza will be arraigned in Portsmouth Municipal Court Monday morning.
