Banks Become Scenes Of Alleged Crimes

Banks on opposite sides of Colorado Springs were the scenes of two different alleged crimes.

In the first incident, a woman was arrested for identity theft and assault after allegedly trying to open a bank account with fake documents.

That incident happened at the Wells Fargo bank on Colorado Ave. near N. 31st Street at 5:32 p.m. July 5.

Police say 32-year-old Angela Flummer tried to open an account with questionable documents and a large personal check.

Police say Flummer became combative when they tried to detain her, going so far as to allegedly bite one of the officers on the hand.

The officer was wearing gloves, and didn't suffer from an open bite wound. Flummer was taken to the hospital for a head injury sustained in the struggle.

Flummer is being charged with assault on a peace officer and identity theft.

In the second reported crime, a bold crook reportedly got into his victims' car while they were pulled up at an ATM machine, and demanded money.

It happened on the other side of Colorado Springs at the Wells Fargo bank near Union and Powers at about 10:30 p.m. July 5.

Police tell 11 News two people were in the vehicle, when the crook reportedly got into the back seat.

The suspect is described as a black man, about 5'8" to 5'9" tall with a medium build. He was wearing a mask and dark clothing at the time of the robbery. Police say he also had a gun. He escaped on foot.

No one was hurt. The crook got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
