LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police have arrested a man authorities say shouted threats and profanities during a bank robbery.
Police arrested 39-year-old Michael Barth on Friday.
According to an arrest report, Barth entered a PNC Bank, located at 4257 Outer Loop, on May 18. Authorities say Barth "immediately became agitated and began screaming profanities" at bank employees and customers.
Officials say Barth demanded money and yelled "I'll blow you all up!" He also shouted "I'll rob the place," according to police.
Police say Barth became increasingly erratic over the deposit/withdrawal slip table, which was located in the center of the bank lobby.
Barth left the bank, after hold up alarms were activated, police say. He did not receive any money during the incident.
Barth was found near the bank by officers who responded to the scene.
He was identified through a physical description provided by witnesses and by distinctive tattoos. He was also wearing the same clothing that was recorded by the bank's surveillance video.
Barth is charged with second-degree robbery.
He is being held at Louisville Metro Corrections on a $15,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear in court on May 30.
