College Park Man Arrested in Connection With Arlington Robbery

Police have named Nathaniel Rush, 26, as suspect in case.

A College Park man is in custody after allegedly robbing an Arlington, Va. bank on May 30, according to Arlington Now.

Police arrested Nathaniel Rush, 26, in connection with the robbery after they found Rush at a nearby D.C. metro station.  He has been charged in the case, and is currently held without bond.

According to Arlington Now, a man entered a PNC Bank on the corner of Wilson Boulevard and N. Glebe Road while flamboyantly dressed in a yellow shirt, multicolored wig and zebra-print shopping bag.  He robbed the bank by passing a slip of paper to a teller demanding money from the bank.  He was armed at the time of the robbery, according to the report.

A witness later saw Rush change in an alley and run toward a nearby metro station, writes Arlington Now.  The witness called the police, and followed Rush to give police a better idea of where the man was headed.

As Rush changed clothes in the alley, red dye from the stolen money bag exploded on his hands and shirt, , allowing police to easily identify him minutes from when the witness first alerted police.

According to Arlington Now, Rush had six dollars on him when he was arrested.  The witness in the case saw the man leave the stolen money behind as he fled the scene.

Police in the case advise any witnesses to a crime call 911,
