Attempted Robbery at CH Plaza Citibank Wed. Afternoon

Yesterday afternoon I happened to notice some police tape up around the Citibank on the Columbia Heights Plaza across from the Giant. I wasn’t able to find a lot of info and was in a rush but I did tweet some photos and the fact that an attempted robbery occurred. A reader sends in a few more details:

“I was sitting in the Columbia Heights Sticky Fingers yesterday, and it appears the Citibank on the corner was either robbed or there was an attempted robbery. They got at least one suspect. When they were transferring the suspect, a woman, from one car to another, they pulled out a black stocking mask with eye holes. The FBI and local PD were on the scene. They closed the bank due to an “emergency situation” by the time I left the coffee shop. I’ve been looking for it to come up in the news, but so far, I haven’t been able to find anything. They cordoned off the whole bank with police tape.”
