A 43-year-old Rio Vista man was arrested after allegedly trying to rob a bank in Daly City on the afternoon of Aug. 29, while threatening that he had an explosive device, police said.
Daniel Mann was arrested following the report of a bank robbery attempt at about 1:30 p.m. at the Bank of America at 7395 Mission Street, according to police.
Mann allegedly entered the bank and gave a note to a teller saying that he had an explosive device and would use it if he was not given money, police said.
The teller did not give any money to Mann, who fled the bank and then allegedly tried to carjack a nearby motorist. That attempt was unsuccessful and he ran away but was located and arrested by officers several blocks away, according to police.
Mann has been booked into San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of bank robbery and other offenses, police said.
