Two Worcester residents were arrested Wednesday for attempting to rob the Webster Five Bank branch on Chandler Street in that city, according to a statement from the Worcester Police Department.

According to employees and witnesses, a woman walked up to a teller on Oct. 9 and attempted to rob the bank. She claimed to have a weapon and demanded the employees put their hands in the air. She ended up walking out of the bank into the Antonio’s Pizza parking lot, according to the police statement, and got into a light green Subaru wagon with a male driver. Police were dispatched to the scene around 11:25 a.m.

After a brief investigation, officers identified the pair as Linda Cook, 40, and Christopher Mara, 36, both of Worcester. Police located the car at the intersection of Grand Street and Canterbury Street with Cook and Mara inside. They were arrested for attempted armed robbery and other active warrants. They will be arraigned in Worcester District Court.
