CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

The "ghost face" bank robber apprehended last week is now in federal custody.

Officials say that Wednesday, November 21, at approximately 10:40a.m., Kevin Wolcott attempted to rob the PNC Bank located at 20711 Chagrin Boulevard, Shaker Heights, Ohio. 

PNC Bank employees alerted police by pressing the bank alarm button while the suspect was inside the bank.  

As fate would have it, there just so happened to be a patrol car nearby.  The Shaker Heights Police Department officers quickly arrested Wolcott and also identified a female accomplice. 

Both Kevin Wolcott and the female have been taken into custody.
