Ranger, Officer Intervene In Attempted Bank Robbery

Lowell National Historical Park

National Park News

Ranger Seth Toensing was conducting law enforcement operations in downtown Lowell on the afternoon of May 5th when he saw a man matching the description of a suspect in a bank robbery that had occurred earlier in the day. Toensing saw him walk into the Sovereign Bank at the corner of Merrimack and Palmer Streets; as he continued to watch the man from outside the bank, Lowell PD was dispatching officers to the same bank in response to a panic alarm. Toensing radioed them and advised that he was at the bank, watching the suspect. After backup officers arrived, Toensing and a Lowell PD lieutenant entered the bank and ordered the man to get on the ground at gunpoint. He was not cooperative at first, but was taken into custody after a brief struggle. The investigation is ongoing, but preliminary investigation revealed that the man had prior convictions for bank robberies.
