Poway robbery gone wrong

Would-be bank robber doesn't know where money is kept

A man failed in his attempt to rob a Poway bank on Friday when he presented his demand note to a loan officer sitting at a desk in the lobby rather than approaching the teller windows where money is kept.

Shortly after 2:30 Friday afternoon, a man that law enforcement describes as a light-skinned male between 18-25 years old and standing about 5' 10" with a slim build, wearing a black and gray hooded jacket and baseball cap, entered the US Bank branch on Scripps Poway Parkway.

He presented a demand note to a bank employee and repeated his request for cash verbally. When the worker explained that no cash was kept at her desk the suspect looked over at the teller windows and, realizing there were no employees staffing them, took the note back and fled without any money.
