NEW CASTLE, Del., Oct. 12 (UPI) -- Police in Delaware said they arrested a man whose alleged attempted bank robbery was foiled when a teller was unable to read his handwriting.

Delaware State Police said Thomas Love, 40, walked into the WSFS Bank at the Crossroads Shopping Center in New Castle about 2:50 p.m. Saturday and handed a demand note written on a deposit slip to a teller.

Investigators said the teller was unable to read Love's handwriting and asked him to fill out another slip. The suspect fled the bank empty-handed, police said.

Love was found in the area of New Castle Avenue and Rodney Drive by a New Castle Police officer and placed under arrest.

Love was charged with attempted robbery second degree and jailed in lieu of $2,000 bond.
