Man arrested for wielding box cutter after Greenfield bank refuses his check

March 27, 2013

A 19-year-old man who threatened a bank manager with a box cutter after the bank refused to cash a check for him was arrested for disorderly conduct on March 22.

According to the Greenfield police log:

The man came into TCF Bank, 4375 S. 76th St., at about 11 a.m. March 22 with the check in hand. However, because the man’s account did not have funds to match the amount of the check, he was told the check could not be cashed.
The man started shaking and told the bank manager that he would have to get his gun. He then reached into his pocket and pulled out a black wallet, and then pulled out a box cutter and made a comment about using it on the manager.
After the man was told to leave the bank, he was seen driving out of the parking lot in a tan-colored sedan. Police located the suspect at his home, where he was taken into custody for disorderly conduct while armed.
