Police: Tucson bank robber thwarted by a teller

Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A would-be bank robber in Tucson fled without any money after a teller yelled out that the bank was being robbed.

Tucson police say an armed man entered the Wells Fargo Bank branch about 10 a.m. Wednesday and handed a teller a note demanding money and threatening harm.

But the teller was behind a bulletproof window and announced out loud to other employees that the bank was being robbed.

Witnesses say the suspect immediately fled the scene without receiving any money.

Police have bank surveillance photos of the would-be robber and are searching for him.
