Robbery call leads to confusion, people being briefly detained at a bank in South Los Angeles

Bank tellers and customers in South Los Angeles got caught in a tense situation after deputies received reports of a possible robbery at a Wells Fargo.

SkyFOX captured the moments where the Wells Fargo in the 1100 block of East Florence Avenue was surrounded by Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department around 5:30 p.m. to 6:10 p.m. Thursday.

During the tense police investigation, several people were being escorted out of the bank and were briefly detained. At around 11 p.m., FOX 11 was told deputies could not point out any burglary suspects – or even found evidence that the Wells Fargo was even robbed in the first place.

FOX 11 was told the people who were briefly detained by law enforcement were let go. No arrests were announced from Thursday's confusion at the South LA location of Wells Fargo.

No injuries were reported in the nonexistent bank robbery. Officials did not specify what prompted deputies to detain the bystanders in the first place.
