Geovany Valencia, 25, walked into Fifth Third Bank at 3601 North Broadway around 5:30 p.m. and told a teller, “I want all your money. Give me all your money,” according to court records.

The teller activated a silent alarm and arriving officers said they found Valencia sitting on the bank floor.

State charges of attempted theft of $15,000 were filed after federal bank robbery charges were declined by the U.S. Attorney’s Office, according to court records.

Valencia, of south suburban Harvey, was ordered held on $30,000 bail by Judge Michael Clancy. Valencia will be required to go onto electronic monitoring if he posts a $3,000 deposit, Clancy said.

In 2015, Valencia was sentenced to two-years in prison for cutting off an electronic monitoring bracelet with scissors. And in 2011, he was sentenced to three years for being a gang member in possession of a firearm.

Court records show that Valencia is currently awaiting trial on allegations that he bit and cut a man with a knife and kicked a woman in her stomach on February 21 in suburban Sauk Village.
