Officers from the Mason District Police Station’s Neighborhood Patrol Unit arrested a man moments after he apparently robbed an employee working at the BB&T Bank at 6120A Arlington Blvd. on Sept. 8.
Montrell Richardson, 33, of 8523 Canterbury Drive, Annandale, entered the bank just before 10:30 a.m. and allegedly demanded money from a 22-year-old teller. She complied, and as the suspect exited the bank, officers engaged him.
Richardson attempted to flee but was quickly apprehended. Officers transported him to the adult detention center and charged him with robbery. The victim was not injured.
Police are investigating to determine whether Richardson is connected to other incidents. The same bank was robbed in July.
