Police: Attempted Robbery at Washington Street Bank Failed When Teller Couldn’t Read Note

Boston Police Department

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges do not indicate a conviction. 

An attempted bank robbery at the Mount Washington Bank on Saturday morning failed when the suspect handed the teller a reportedly illegible note, called her “stupid” for not being able to read it, and left. 

Boston Police responded to a robbery in progress at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Mount Washington Bank at 1134 Washington St.

One of the bank’s tellers told police that just before 11 a.m., a suspect had attempted to rob the bank. The employee told officers that the suspect handed her a note. The employee was unable to determine the exact wording of the note, but was able to read the word “shoot.”

The suspect then stated, “Give me the money or I’ll shoot you.”

The employee told officers that she was confused at first and asked the suspect to repeat what he had said. The suspect then told the employee, “You are stupid.” He then took the note, and left the bank. read more
