New Orleans, La.- Federal agents say a bank robber wearing a reflective work vest held up the Gulf Coast Bank branch in Mid-City early Wednesday afternoon.

Today, at approximately 12:41 pm there was a robbery at the Gulf Coast Bank branch located in the 200 block of N. Carrollton Avenue in Mid-City.
