A 26-year-old man thought he was doing a good deed when he gave a 70-year-old woman a lift to a bank in Janesville, Minnesota. But police say the woman robbed the bank, and the man was her unsuspecting getaway driver.
The man thought the woman, who rents a flat from his mother, was going to withdraw cash to pay her rent. Instead, employees of the Elysian State Bank reported that an “elderly woman” walked out with cash after claiming she had a gun.
Police stopped the car and took both into custody before deciding the woman acted alone. The woman, who had a hammer but no gun, is in jail, pending charges.
