A customer captured a would-be at a Lincoln bank on Saturday.

Lincoln Police Capt. Danny Reitan said the suspect was armed with a pocket knife but never opened it Saturday morning at the Union Bank branch on North 48th Street.

The customer, 28-year-old Garret Bush, wrestled the suspect to the ground and held him for police. Bush said he just felt like he was doing his duty.

"You just can't always stand by and let people get away with stuff like this," Bush said.

The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Brett Dovel, of Lincoln. Online court records don't list the name of Dovel's attorney.
