An elderly Hudson Valley man was arrested after he returned to a local bank that he allegedly attempted to rob.

On Feb. 6, police were told a man entered the Citizen's Bank on Vassar Road in the Town of Poughkeepsie and attempted to rob a teller. The man didn't display a weapon and left the bank on foot without any proceeds, police say.

On Saturday, Citizen's Bank contacted the Town of Poughkeepsie Police Department and said the suspect from the previous attempt was in a car in the bank parking lot.

The suspect, 74-year-old Richard P. Fuhrmann of Highland, left before police arrived. After a brief investigation, he was found and charged with attempted robbery, a felony.

Fuhrmann was remanded to Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond.
