Los Angeles police detained a man wanted in an attempted robbery of the Wells Fargo bank branch in Studio City Wednesday.
According to Senior Lead Officer Michael Lewis, the suspect, a man, entered the bank at 12900 Ventura Blvd. adjacent to Ralph's near 2 p.m. and handed the teller a demand note.
No money was taken, Lewis added.
The suspect reportedly ran out of the bank and was chased by a citizen. Lewis said the tellers observed the man looked familiar from hanging around the area. The police quickly spotted the man a few blocks away in an alley between Ventura Boulevard and Arch Drive and he was detained.
Lewis said the suspect was positively identified in a field show up.
