A transient accused of harassing a teller at a downtown Los Altos bank last week faces a felony charge of making criminal threats.
Katana Moody, 29, walked into the Comerica Bank on Third Street at approximately 3 p.m. May 9 and threatened to slap a female employee, according to Los Altos Police Department Sgt. Ryan Burke. Moody then refused orders to leave the bank.
Police officers found and arrested Moody in an alley near the Heritage Bank of Commerce, located in the 400 block of South San Antonio Road, approximately an hour later, Burke said.
There is no indication Moody intended to rob the banks, and the incident may be related to mental health issues, Burke said.
