WOODLAND, Calif. — A suspected bank robber was arrested after he was talked out of the crime by a bystander, Woodland police said Monday.
The Woodland Police Department said a bank customer was able to de-escalate a robbery attempt at Bank of the West on Main Street.
Eduardo Plasencia, 43, gave a note to a teller allegedly saying he had a gun and was robbing the bank. However, police said the bank customer was able to calm Plasencia down and encouraged him not to rob the bank.
Police said Plasencia ended up changing his mind and left the bank.
Plasencia was arrested and booked into the Yolo County jail on suspicion of attempted robbery.
