Robbery suspect arrested after barricading himself inside Anaheim bank

A man was arrested in Anaheim on Monday morning on suspicion of robbery after he barricaded himself inside a Wells Fargo bank for about 30 minutes, authorities said.

Employees inside the bank branch at 1662 N. Raymond Ave. locked themselves inside a backroom away from the suspect and called the police at 9:09 a.m., Anaheim Police Sgt. Daron Wyatt said.

Police arrived on the scene and began negotiating with the suspect for about 30 to 40 minutes, trying to persuade him to come out.

Wyatt said the suspect “surrendered without incident.” No one was injured and there were no hostages.
