ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — A bank robbery suspect was arrested in northern Virginia Tuesday after a short standoff with police.
No injuries were reported.
Arlington County Police said they received a report Tuesday shortly after 3 p.m. about an attempted armed robbery at a Wells Fargo bank on Washington Boulevard in the city’s Clarendon neighborhood.
A suspect entered the bank, implied he had a weapon and demanded money, police said.
The suspect was barricaded in the bank with four adults and a child, a group that included patrons and employees, police said.
Shortly after 4:30 p.m., police reported on Twitter that the suspect had been arrested, and that the five trapped inside with the suspect had exited safely.
Traffic cameras showed a heavy police presence throughout the barricade situation.
