CHICAGO, April 4 (UPI) -- The FBI said an attempted bank robber in Chicago was foiled by a teller who told her the bank was closed and she should come back the following day.

The criminal complaint filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court said Olga Perdomo walked into the Albany Bank and Trust on West Lawrence Avenue around 5 p.m. on March 29 and handed a teller a note demanding "all of your money, no cops, no dye pack," the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday.

However, after reading the note, the teller told the woman the bank was closed and told her to come back the next day.

"The female then left the bank," the complaint said.

The woman, who was seen by a surveillance camera, was spotted by a bank employee walking outside of the establishment with a man around 3:20 p.m. Monday.

Perdomo was arrested and police caught the man she was walking with after a short chase. The man was identified as Willie Weathersby, who officers recognized as a suspect in the robbery of $2,589 from the same bank March 23, the FBI said.
