Bank employees thwarted robbery, Madison police say

September 6, 2018

Employees at an East Side bank that had been robbed less than a month ago weren’t going to let it happen again.

The employees held down a man allegedly trying to rob Home Savings Bank, 3762 E. Washington Ave., Tuesday morning, and kept him in custody until police arrived.

“The would-be robber was taken away for questioning,” said Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain.

On Aug. 10, a man robbed the same bank, fleeing with an undisclosed amount of money.
