CHICO, Calif. (AP) - Authorities in Northern California evacuated a bank after a woman became upset that she had less money in her account than she was expecting.

Chico Police Sgt. Cesar Sandoval says authorities received a call from a bank employee at about 11:10 a.m. saying there was a woman inside the U.S. Bank in downtown Chico who was demanding money and refused to leave without it.

Sandoval says the 25-year-old woman, who was not identified, made no threats or demands, but because of the information provided, police treated the incident as a possible bank robbery, surrounding the bank and evacuating it.

The Chico Enterprise-Record reports (http://bit.ly/1bjg2xN ) that police called the woman, who had remained inside the bank, on her cellphone and convinced her to come outside. She was taken to the Behavioral Health facility in Chico voluntarily.
