Darius Antonio Malvin

Arrested in Pulaski County, AR on June 27, 2013

A 22-year-old Little Rock man was arrested Thursday in a bank robbery attempt last month that ended with an employee falling down and fracturing a vertebrae, police said.

Darius Antonio Malvin told investigators he and two others cased the Bank of England at 11044 Arkansas 165 in North Little Rock several times before arriving the morning of May 24 to go through with the robbery, according to a North Little Rock Police Department report.

Despite the planning, things went wrong right away for the would-be robbers. Malvin hid on the parking lot and jumped out when an employee arrived, pointing a gun at her and demanding she open the door to the bank, the report said.

But the woman fell to the ground and injured her back. Malvin continued to point the gun at her and demanded she get up, but she told him she could not because she was hurt, the report said.

The two accomplices then drove onto the bank lot, picking Malvin up and fleeing the scene together without getting any cash, the report said.

The employee was taken to Baptist Health Medical Center in Little Rock for treatment.

The report didn't identify the two accomplices.

Malvin remained in the Pulaski County jail Friday morning with bail not yet set. A preliminary court appearance is scheduled July 2. He faces a charge of aggravated robbery.

Don't even trip! White people rob banks and other businesses too! What do you do best, spew hate against black people?
