A woman suspected of robbing a Southcrest-area bank using a demand note was arrested a few blocks from the scene of the crime a short time later, authorities reported Thursday.
The heist at Neighborhood National Bank, 3511 National Ave., took place about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to San Diego Police.
As the suspected robber fled with an undisclosed amount of money, several witnesses followed her and pointed her out to police, who promptly took her into custody, Officer Tony Martinez said.
The name of the suspect was not immediately available.
