Maricopa man accused in attempted bank robbery

YUMA, AZ (AP) -

Authorities say a Maricopa man is in custody for allegedly trying to rob a bank in Yuma last month.  Yuma police say 39-year-old Christopher Montiel was arrested Thursday in the Phoenix suburb of Maricopa on unrelated charges.

While being interviewed by Maricopa police, Montiel allegedly admitted to attempting to rob the Mohave State Bank on Dec. 11.

Witnesses say a man entered the bank wearing a baseball cap and sunglasses. He handed a teller a note and also verbally demanded money.

No weapon was seen and authorities say the suspect left the bank without getting any money and fled the scene in a car.

Yuma police say they obtained a felony warrant for Montiel. He'll be transported to the Yuma County Adult Detention Center from the Pinal County Detention Center.
