Bank Robber Stopped By Gun Wielding Good Samaritan

| by Amanda Andrade-Rhoades

Mark Katchem allegedly tried to rob a bank in Cobb County, Georgia, on March 24. Unfortunately for him, another customer prevented him from getting away.

Katchem, 25, reportedly slipped a note to a Wells Fargo teller demanding money. Another customer, who has not been named, noticed what was happening and followed Katchem outside. He then grabbed a gun from his car and ordered Katchem to get on the ground, where he stayed until police arrived. 

Katchem was arrested and charged with robbery by intimidation. He’s currently being held at Cobb jail on $15,000 bond.

Nick Daley, who snapped a photo of the good Samaritan, told My Fox Atlanta, “I immediately knew by the way the man was standing, his stance, he was in control of the situation.”
