Police said the note was not handwritten but typed: “This is a robbery. I have a gun and bomb.”
The teller at the Key Bank at 256 North St., near Elmwood Avenue, gave him money, and the man left. But he didn’t move quickly enough. Buffalo police say they caught the robber right outside the bank Friday afternoon.
Charged with felony counts of robbery and grand larceny is Richard Nowak, 59, of Chelsea Place, Buffalo.
