Police arrest generous 'bank robber'

Last updated 11:40 30/12/2011

Boston police say a woman suspected of robbing a city bank was caught a short time later handing out dollar bills to children at a park.

Police say workers at the Citizens Bank told them a woman walked into the branch just after 3pm on Wednesday, local time, passed a teller a note demanding money and warned she had a gun. She then left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

A cab driver told police that a fare had told him that she just robbed a bank.

Police found the suspect, Jasmin Rivera, at the park handing out money.

Rivera was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation at her arraignment Thursday. A doctor told a judge she has serious mental health issues. A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.
