BANK ROBBERS are among the most feared criminals but yesterday two citizens took matters into their own hands and stopped one in his tracks, though he was thought to have been armed with a cutlass.
Samuel Waithe was on his way to Royal Bank of Canada’s (RBC) University Drive, Black Rock, St Michael branch yesterday morning when he noticed a man rushing out of the bank with a mask on his face.
Waithe said he immediately felt the bank had been robbed and decided he was going to effect a citizen’s arrest. A customer inside the bank who had witnessed the crime that occurred about 10:25 also had a similar plan.
The two did not know each other, but they took off after the robber, whom Waithe said appeared to be between the age of 18 and 20.
