Seattle bank robber picks worst place to hide from cops

Of all the places to hide from police, this suspected bank robber probably picked the worst.

According to Seattle police, the man robbed the Wells Fargo bank branch in the 400 block of Broadway around 9:40 this morning.  Witnesses told responding officers the robber left the bank and walked away.

The man then ducked into a Top Pot Doughnuts shop in the 600 block of Summit Avenue East, where he asked employees to call him a cab. Not surprisingly, police arrived minutes later and arrested the man.
