Police Arrest Man For Would-Be Bank Robbery


Colorado Springs police have arrested the man they say attempted an armed bank robbery Friday morning.

Police say the attempted robbery happened at Colorado Capital Bank at 2 Cascade Avenue in Colorado Springs. He was armed with a handgun.

Sgt. Steve Noblitt with CSPD tells 11 News that the would-be crook actually got spooked in the middle of trying to rob the bank, and ran out. Witnesses say the man was last seen running away north of the bank. He did not get away with any cash, according police.

On Tuesday, police arrested Aaron Rasco.

    The fact that this kid had any affect on his crime. He choose to make an attempt to rob a bank and could have been the cause of innocent bystanders. Anyone who uses a gun to commit a crime is a punk and a threat to society. No one was ragging on him...its fact...he could have been the pope and i would still feel the same so why show him any remorse...better yet if you knew that he was so troubled where were you at when all this was happening

    Mayb if any of you REALLY knew him... you would think a lot different... this is my son... he has autism .. doesnt make it right for him to do what he did and what he has been doing.. so before you bag on someone really KNOW who they are... cause you only know the outside of him... I know his heart.. he loves his family, would NEVER steal from his family, maybe from u he will... but HE means a lot to all of us... thankyou...
