MEDFORD, Ore., July 17 (UPI) -- An Oregon man who stopped at his bank to talk about some forged checks said the accused forger came into the bank behind him and tried to cash a check.

David Henneman of Medford said he stopped at the Chase bank inside the Southgate Fred Meyer around 2:30 p.m. Saturday to talk about stopping fraudulent checks that went through his account the previous day when Matthew Frombach, 37, came in and attempted to cash a $150 check from Henneman's account, the Mail Tribune, Medford, reported Tuesday.

"The teller's eyes just got huge and she said, 'Oh my gosh, I think that's him,'" Henneman said.

Henneman said bank employees attempted to delay Frombach, but he fled the store with Henneman's friend in pursuit.

"They wouldn't let me leave with veins popping out of my forehead, so my buddy went after him," Henneman said. "The tellers said, 'You're a good guy, we don't want you to go to jail.'"

The friend, Josh Rigiero, 28, attempted to stop Frombach, but ended up punched in the face by the suspect. Rigiero got back up and tackled Frombach, holding him until police arrived.

Lt. Mike Budreau said Frombach was in possession of several credit cards belonging to other people.

Frombach, who is suspected of stealing the checks from Henneman's mailbox, was charged with first-degree forgery, theft, criminal possession of a forged instrument, negotiating a bad check, disorderly conduct, fourth-degree assault, harassment and resisting arrest.

"It will be a good story to tell for years to come," Henneman said.
