Teen bank robber’s escape plans fail, gets trapped between electronic doors
DETROIT (January 6, 2016) — A teen accused of robbing a Detroit bank didn’t have a good getaway plan.
Police say a teller at a Chase bank activated electronic locks Monday, trapping the 15-year-old boy between a set of doors on his way out. He was arrested when officers arrived.
Officer Dan Donakowski tells the Detroit Free Press that the teen had threatened to use a bomb if the teller didn’t give him money. Police don’t believe he had a weapon.
