Back page: Bank robber strikes during live nws broadcast

ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) — An Iowa television station was doing a live update on a Minnesota bank robbery when police say the suspect returned to rob it a second time. KIMT-TV of Mason City, Iowa, was outside Sterling State Bank in Rochester on Tuesday when a bank employee ran out and pointed out the robbery suspect. Reporter Adam Sallet broke away from the report, saying, “I have to go. I have to call 911.” The Post-Bulletin reports police spotted the suspect’s vehicle on U.S. Highway 52. The Minnesota State Patrol says the man was pulled over south of Minneapolis and arrested. Police Capt. John Sherwin says the man is suspected of robbing the bank two days in a row. In both robberies, the suspect presented a note and escaped with money.
