(KRON) — A suspect was arrested in an attempted bank robbery Thursday afternoon, the Walnut Creek Police Department (WCPD) said on Twitter. The suspect attempted to rob the U.S. Bank on Civic Drive but was unsuccessful as no money was taken.
The U.S. Bank at 1655 N Main St. is located across the street from the WCPD station. The suspect was identified as Douglas Crosby, a 45-year-old man from Walnut Creek.
Around 1:45 p.m., officers responded to an alarm coming from the bank and discovered the suspect was still inside the building, WCPD said. Nearby businesses were instructed to evacuate, and police eventually arrested Crosby without incident.
No injuries were reported from the attempted robbery, and no weapons were involved, WCPD said.
Crosby was booked into Martinez Detention Facility without bail “due the parole hold,” the department said. He was charged with violating his parole, along with robbery.
There were no additional suspects.
