Uptown Bank Robbery Results in Wreckage of Cars

An Uptown bank robber left behind a wreckage of cars Monday in his attempt to escape police.

The middle-aged Hispanic suspect entered a TCF Bank on Lake Street in Uptown and gave a demanding note to an available teller. The man took an unknown amount of money from the teller and threatened to spray the bank employee with Mace, the Pioneer Press reported.

The suspect left the bank with an accomplice in an Acura that was reported stolen. He struck a moving car, injuring two people, and continued to crash the Acura into several parked cars, Kare 11 reported.

The man then carjacked a woman in her Ford Taurus after threatening to shoot her.
