Brave Citizens Thwart Daytime Bank Robbery

(Except taken from Star City Gazetteer online article)

Today saw five masked men attempt to rob Star City National Bank. Eye witnesses state two customers with the assistance of a masked vigilante were able to prevent these criminals from completing their goal. Not all individuals were fans of this remarkable act of daring. Bank Manager Stephen Kidto stated “Our highest priority is the safety of our customers. The actions of these individuals could have placed others in harm’s way.”
The would be robbers fled from the scene after the citizens foiled their plans of a heist. The vigilantes pursued the vehicle both in car, and as reported by several on lookers, zipping through the air using some sort of grappling system. The SCPD arrived on the scene and were able to apprehend the culprits without issue. While the detective on the scene would not comment if the identities of the “heroes” were known or if they were going to face legal reprisals he did state that “vigilantism is a crime and that individual citizens taking the law into their own hands is dangerous to all involved” and “can cause issues with appropriate legal action being taken against criminals”.

(Reader comments to the article seem mixed but mostly positive. There are several comments about how police & courts are either unable to take swift or effective action against crime.)

This journalist is reporting the presence of a bipedal cat person seen, by eye witnesses, stalking the shadowy alley ways of Southpoint for the last several weeks. The Mayor’s office is attempting to suppress the information of this genetic experiment gone awry but I have it on good authority that police officers in the area have been told to redact information about these sightings from their paperwork.

The Underground is offering a reward for photographic evidence of the existence of this creature.
