Attempted robbery at Key Bank today

Update: Wednesday, October 5, 10:54am: Despite what the P-I reported yesterday (see below), the attempted robbery took place at Key Bank on N. 45th, and not Wells Fargo. A spokesperson from Key Bank verified this and said there were no weapons involved and the suspect was apprehended near Meridian.

A would-be bank robber was apprehended today (Tuesday, October 4) in Wallingford, according to the SPD Blotter:

On October 4th at approximately 10:40 a.m. officers responded to a bank robbery in the 1700 block of North 45th Street in Wallingford.  The suspect was gone upon the officers’ arrival.  Preliminary investigation indicates that the adult male suspect presented a note to a teller but left the bank empty handed.  No weapon was seen.

Shortly after responding to the call, police apprehended a 45 year-old male suspect in the area. He’s been arrested and booked into King County Jail for Investigation of Robbery.

The Blotter doesn’t specify which bank it was, but the P-I reports that it was the Wells Fargo branch on the corner of N. 45th and Densmore.
