A 32-year-old man allegedly attempted to rob a bank in Sitka Tuesday morning.
At around 10 a.m. the man walked into Alps Federal Credit Union on Halibut Point Rd. with what appeared to the tellers to be a firearm. That’s according to Sitka Police Department spokesperson Serena Wild.
The man demanded money and received a small amount from the tellers. Police arrested him outside when he exited. They’d received a 911 call from the bank.
According to court records, the individual is under guardianship due to a disability. A competency hearing has been scheduled in Sitka Superior Court on July 10.
Wild said no one was injured. The man is being charged with one class A felony and four class A misdemeanors. If he is found competent to proceed, a preliminary hearing will be held on August 10.
