ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– Two men are in custody after being arrested in an attempted bank robbery.

Police say Andre McGee and Jameel Sykes were about to rob the Simmons Bank Branch on Natural Bridge Friday morning when they were caught.

Before the bank opened, the two were seen at that location.

An hour and a half later, an off duty North Woods officer was in the bank when the manager alerted him to the suspects’ return.

The off duty officer engaged them in conversation until other officers arrived questioned the suspects and took them into custody.
