Accused bank robber nabbed after returning to the scene

A need for reassurance and approval was the ultimate downfall for a man now accused of robbing a Victoria bank.
 
Police say he approached a teller at a downtown Scotiabank branch and, after conducting a transaction, mumbled something to her.
 
Spokesman Bowen Osoko says the man then said he had just tried to rob her, and asked if he could have some feedback on how the robbery was proceeding.
 
“The teller did actually not say anything, apparently. And the man, I guess, realized it just wasn’t going to go that well and just left.”

The man was spotted again walking by the bank, peering into the windows, as police were inside investigating.
 
He was quickly arrested.
