GREENWICH, Conn. (WTNH) -- A man was arrested for bringing in a forged ID and documents to a bank to try to open an account.
Patrick D. Robinson, 26, of 109 Lexington Ave., New York, New York, entered the Chase bank on Greenwich Ave. and tried to open an account.
An alert teller thought something was suspicious and called police. Robinson quickly left prior to the officers arrival, police said.
A plainclothes officer found Robinson soon after near a New York taxi cab driven by Juan Madrigal, 49, of 1685 Topping Ave., Apt. 64, Bronx, New York.
During the initial questioning Robinson fled from the scene.
The foot chase continued into a backyard on Ridge Street. No one was injured during the chase or apprehension, police reported.
Investigation revealed Madrigal knowingly participated in the scheme and tried to dispose of fraudulent documents which Robinson had left in the Taxi.
Madrigal was charged with credit card fraud, tampering with or fabricating a credit card and interfering with an officer.
Robinson was charged with criminal impersonation, second-degree forgery, interfering with an officer and littering.
Both were held overnight on $10,000 bond and a court date was set for Dec. 12 in Stamford.
