MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Police say a man robbed a Minneapolis bank with the hopes of being caught.

Minneapolis Police were called to a Wells Fargo Bank on 800 Park Ave. just before 6:30 p.m. on July 7.

A bank employee said the robber, Hassan Muse Farah, had walked through the front entrance and gave one of the tellers a threatening hand written note.

The teller gave him money from the register. Then Farah, 20, walked over to a chair in the business lobby and sat down to wait until police arrived and he was arrested.

Police said Farah waived his Miranda rights, admitted to robbing the bank, and has been charged with second degree aggravated robbery.

They say he robbed the bank and waited for them to arrive just so he could be sent to prison or deported.

Farah remains in custody. Bail is set at $50,000.
