WASHINGTON (AP) — Metropolitan police have identified an alleged bank robber who tried to use the Metro as his getaway vehicle.
The Metropolitan Police Department says officers arrested Scott Lee Feuer, 57, of southeast Washington in connection with the robbery Friday.
Police say the robbery happened at a Wells Fargo bank on K Street at about 10 a.m. Friday. Police asked Metro Transit Police to hold trains at the Dupont Circle stop after the suspect fled in that direction.
A Metro spokesman says authorities were able to arrest Feuer on a train bound for Silver Spring.
