Seattle police broke a taxicab window to arrest a woman following an attempted carjacking and a foiled bank robbery.
Officer Mark Jamieson said a teller told a uniformed police captain shortly before noon Monday that a man was trying to rob the downtown bank.
The captain told the man to show his hands, but he walked out and entered a taxicab that also contained a woman and the driver. When the captain ordered everyone in the taxi to show their hands, the man threatened the driver, who ran away.
Jamieson said the man couldn’t get the car in gear and ran away.

After more officers arrived, police broke the rear window with a non-lethal projectile and took the woman into custody for questioning. The man remained at large.
