Robber Gives $100 BillsOhio, May 5, (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a bizarre development that has taken the Columbus police by sheer surprise a black man robbed a bank and after that handed over a pair of $100 bills to a pedestrian. The man whose identity is not known attempted to loot a Huntington Bank branch. The incident took place on Monday morning. The man entered the bank and gave a robbery note to one of the tellers. When the teller hesitated to give the money he showed her a semi-automatic pistol under his shirt. This prompted the teller to hand him over the money he wanted. He left the bank thereafter and ran towards High Street.

The man came across a daughter and mother duo who were out for shopping. They were looking at the shops around the street when they were confronted by the robber. Naturally, it was not possible for them to understand what he did just minutes back and that he was fleeing from the scene of crime. Unexpectedly, the man gave them two $100 bills which took them by surprise. The elder woman was shocked and asked him whether it was real or fake. The man assured that the notes were real and left the place in a hurry.

The women took some time to register what happened. They decided to go to the nearby Huntington Bank to check if the money was real or not. They had no inkling that the bank had been robbed. They saw police approaching the bank and asking people about the robbery and this made things clear to them. They gave the $100 bills to the cops.
