Boston Police report arresting a man who tried to rob a bank well after it was closed.
Police say Henry Soto, 33, of Dorchester, used a brick to smash open a door at the Citizen Bank branch at 572 Columbia Rd. around 12:10 a.m. today. That set off an alarm, which brought officers racing to the scene:
On arrival, officers observed an inner glass door leading directly into the bank lobby was damaged and noticed the suspect standing behind the teller counter. A quick thinking officer used his ATM Card to gain access to the ATM lobby allowing officers to climb through the broken glass door into the bank. The suspect ran from officers and headed to the rear of the bank. With no where else to run the suspect resisted officers and a brief struggle followed ending when the officers handcuffed the suspect.
Soto was charged with breaking and entering, trespassing, receiving stolen goods, destruction of personal property and resisting arrest.
