ELK GROVE, Calif. (CBS) – A bank robbery in Elk Grove was thwarted by a teller who just didn’t have time for it.
Elk Grove police say that just before 11 a.m. Friday, the would-be robber walked into a Bank of America branch on 8842 Calvine Road and handed the teller a note demanding money. But instead of complying with the man, the teller didn’t respond to the note, said Elk Grove Police Department public information officer Chris Trim.
Seeing that he wasn’t getting anything from the teller, the suspect walked out, say police.
Someone noticed the suspect running through a residential area and called the police. When officers tried to contact the suspect, he ran away crossing through several backyards and ending up in a park. They eventually arrested the suspect.
His identity has not been released, but police say the suspect is 17. He was booked into the Sacramento County Juvenile Hall on the charge of attempted robbery.
