Kenyan Woman Tries to Rob a Bank in Texas [VIDEO]
A Kenyan woman tried to rob a bank in Murphy, Texas on Wednesday.
Police say Evelyn Musimi, 36, walked into a Bank of America branch armed with a hammer, gasoline and lighter fluid. She poured gasoline and lighter fluid on the bank’s lobby and demanded cash from the tellers while waving the hammer. Bank employees called 911, forcing Evelyn to run outside towards her car, says the police report.
When police arrived at the scene, they tried to use paper spray to subdue her, but she pulled a 9-month-old baby from her car and “attempted to use the child as a shield,” police say.
Evelyn was taken to Collin County jail. The child was taken to Children’s Medical Center as a precaution.
Evelyn faces robbery and child endangerment charges.
