ASHLAND, OH (WOIO) - A 59-year-old alleged bank robber is behind bars, after two customers hold him until police arrived on scene.

The bank employee gave Schreve the money and he left on foot.

Two customers followed Schreve outside, confronted him and eventually subdued him until officers got to the bank.

Schreve was treated at University Hospital for minor injuries before being transported to the jail.

He is charged with robbery.
