Woman suspected of robbing bank gave stolen cash to children

Police in the US city of Boston say they found the suspect in a bank robbery handing out cash to children at a park.

BOSTON POLICE SAY a woman suspected of robbing a city bank was caught a short time later handing out dollar bills to children at a park.

Police say workers at the Citizens Bank told them a woman walked into the branch just after 3 pm on Wednesday, passed a teller a note demanding money and warned she had a gun.

She then left with an undisclosed amount of cash. A cab driver told police that a fare had told him that she just robbed a bank.

Police found the suspect, Jasmin Rivera, at the park handing out money.

Rivera was ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation at her arraignment yesterday.

A doctor told a judge she has serious mental health issues. A not guilty plea was entered on her behalf.
