Quincy police said they arrested two people in an attempted unarmed robbery Tuesday after the pair was acting suspiciously around Eastern Bank in Quincy.

According to police, the teller said she saw the female suspect come in through the rear of the bank. She was wearing a black hoodie with the hood up.

The woman avoided the line and came to the window, where the teller could see the suspect was wearing clear rubber gloves. The teller asked the suspect to remove her hood, but she did not and instead moved to a different teller, police said.

The original teller followed her and told her to remove her hood. The suspect said she only wanted to cash a check, but did not produce anything, police said.

The teller told the suspect a third time to remove her hood. The suspect then said that the teller was being rude and unreasonable and walked out of the bank.

Witnesses living near the bank said they saw a man drive a vehicle to the back of the bank and let the female out. The car then pulled around. The female soon left the bank and got in the car, which left the scene.

Police searched the area and found two people matching the suspects’ description driving nearby on Federal Ave.

Police questioned the suspects and arrested Kristina Dyer, 24, of Weymouth and Kenneth Brooks, 28, from South Boston, for allegedly attempting to commit a crime: unarmed robbery.
