Watch: Bank robbery suspect returns to scene during live TV report

A local TV station in Iowa was doing a live update on a Minnesota bank robbery on Tuesday when the suspect in the robbery returned to the scene of the crime.

KIMT-TV reporter Adam Sallet was reporting on the first heist at Sterling State Bank in Rochester, Minnesota, when a bank employee ran out and pointed at the suspect.

The TV journalist was forced to cut short his on-air report.

"I have to go," he announced. "I have to call [emergency services on] 911."

The Minnesota State Patrol said the 36-year-old Rochester man was pulled over south of Minneapolis and arrested.
