Latonia Bank Robbery Suspect Charged in Cold Spring Bank Robbery, Too

The man arrested after robbing the Huntington Bank branch in Latonia this week is also charged in robbing the US Bank branch in Cold Spring.

Akihiko Clayton, 20, was arrested on Tuesday seconds after attempting to run from the Latonia bank where he allegedly used a toy gun to order employees to the ground.

Turns out, police said this week, Clayton is also suspected in holding up the Cold Spring bank, too.

On July 14, a man matching Clayton's description went into the Cold Spring bank with a black garbage bag over his face and brandishing what looked to be a handgun.

He fled with an undetermined amount of cash without injuring anyone, but a surveillance camera got a shot of his face.

Clayton is in the Kenton County Detention Center on two separate $100,000 bonds. He is scheduled to appear in court again on August 4.
