How come it doesn't say what he was doing at the teller's window? Did he try to rob this bank, did he make some kind of transaction, etc.?

We can only report the information that authorities provide. At the Indus American Bank robbery, the suspect reportedly handed the teller a note with instructions. Don't know if that was done in this incident and for now officials aren't saying. Scot Wayne, you have the info we have right here, but if you know something, contact law enforcement and your Patch editor.
