PITTSBURGH — A suspected bank robber was arrested and taken to a hospital Thursday morning after getting trapped and finding himself unable to leave the building in Lawrenceville.
Channel 4 Action News' Bob Mayo reported that the man got stuck between the double glass doors at Citizens Bank on Butler Street when an employee hit a switch to activate that built-in safety measure shortly after 9 a.m.
"I always get annoyed by these double doors, because they're just frustrating," said Cynthia Horn, of Lawrenceville. "But now I see the point, so that's pretty cool."
Thick, black tape now covers a shattered portion of the front glass. Witnesses said the man was banging on it, trying to get out, and he left blood marks on both the glass and the floor.
