GREENWOOD, Ind. (WISH) - A man has been arrested after he surrendered to police following a bank robbery.
Officers were called to the Chase Bank located at 1225 South Park Drive around 10:45 a.m. Wednesday to the report of a bank robbery in progress. When officers arrived they were advised by a bank employee that the suspect was still inside.
All employees of the bank were able to leave safely, and shortly after, the suspect walked out the front doors and surrendered, according to a release.
Police arrested 55-year-old Steven Thau. Thau told officers he was homeless and that he worked up the nerve to rob the bank.
He wrote a note on a deposit slip and passed it to a teller that said, "Give me the money, I have a gun." According to Thau, when he saw the teller's fearful reaction, he said he wouldn't hurt anyone and that she should push the alarm button.
Thau waited inside for police. Officers arrived shortly after.
Thau has been preliminarily charged with robbery, a Class C felony.
