Milwaukee police say a bank robber had a change of heart and returned to the bank he had just held up -- to return the money.

But police were already at the bank, investigating the robbery.

Deputy Chief Brian O’Keefe says the alleged robber returned to ask if he could give the money back.

He banged on a window, and a teller tried to tell him the bank was closed. Then another employee recognized him as the man who had just held her up.

The man had entered the bank earlier that afternoon and demanded money, implying he had a gun.

O’Keefe says it’s the first time he remembers a bank robber who wanted to give back his loot, but that doesn’t mean he’ll get off without charges.
