Longview police arrested a 68-year-old Bellingham, Wash., man on suspicion of trying to rob the US Bank on Hudson Street in downtown Longview Wednesday morning.

The suspect, Richard K. Gorton, "demanded a small amount of money and then walked toward the Longview police station," which is located a few blocks away from the bank, according to the release.

There were no weapons or injuries involved, police said in a press release. Gorton told investigators he sought incarceration because he is homeless and has been unable to obtain social services.
