What people thought was a bank robbery turned out to be what police call an attempted carjacking. Just before noon yesterday, a man with a gun walked into the SunTrust bank branch on Wilmington Island, and people inside assumed he was there to rob them.
Savannah-Chatham police officers were right outside and came in and confronted the man.
He's identified as Aldridge Walker, 19. Investigators say he was planning to carjack a Mustang in the parking lot, but he saw police and ran into the bank to get away.
He's being charged with carrying a concealed weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.
