. a news alert out of d.c. tonight. twice in the last week, someone tried to rob a bank by cutting a hole in a wall from the next door business. it happened last friday morning and again this morning at an mnt bank on wisconsin avenue in georgetown and that is where we find paul wagner with the latest on is this this story. >> reporter: the fbi is on the scene processing the crime scene. what i want to show you is that there are three vacant buildings adjacent to this mnt bank. at 2:00 this morning and if the traffic cooperates here, we will show you where and there is that doorway. it's pulled off the hinges there and is propped up against the wall. just inside that door, where that man is going right now, there is a large hole in the
wall. that is where the fbi believes one or two suspects broke through the wall and tried to get into the back part of the bank. where the atms are at this point and that is unclear whether or not they got anything. >> reporter: the fbi released those images of a man in a white hazmat suit wearing a blue baseball cap and using tools to cut through a wall to get to the automatic teller machine. it was about 2:00 a.m. when police got the call. at one point, calling in the fire department to make sure the building was structurally sound and just last friday at the same time, the police found a sum scene n. this video released by the fbi, the man appears to wear the same suit with a mask and glove and a
hood pulled over the head. at one point, getting access to a fixture on the wall. >> and these are braze know break-ins. we ask for the public's help and helping us solve this. >> reporter: a little over a year ago, on may 24th, someone tried to pull the same caper at the same connecticut avenue bank in the exact same way. and in the video, the man is not wearing a mask gloves or a white hazmat suit. >> we would ask the public for any information, whether they know of people talking about the crimes, whether they have seen suspicious activity the past week and at the bank of america location and mnt bank and -- >> at the bank of america on connecticut, both attempts fail. they opened the wall and couldn't open the atm. and at that bank last year, the fbi said they believe there
were two suspects involved in the incidents last friday and this friday. it's unclear if there were two people. it -- in the video that we saw, can you only see one suspect. so it's unclear whether or not the same people who were trying to get into that bank last year are the same ones that tried the same caper in georgetown, matt? >> paul wagner, thank you. and an adult and two children were rushed to the hospital. the firefighters say flames broke out in the kitchen of the second story unit and they had to use ladders to rescue several people from the third floor and officials say the victims suffered minor injuries. new video tonight of a ride- on bus crashing into a house on silver spring. this happened monday morning and this is surveillance video here from inside the bus. watch here. can you see the passengers go flying when the bus driver loses control and crashes into

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message.
. it's the end of the world for cyclist lance armstrong. the u.s. antidoping agency stripped him of his seven tour de france titles and banned him for life from racing. the decision comes after armstrong decided to no longer challenge doping allegations against him. he released a statement saying, quote, there comes a point in every man's life when he has to say enough is enough.
for me, that time is now. end quote. the president of the world antidoping agency said armstrong's decision is clearly an admission of guilt. >> if he was innocent, he would have stated as much by rebutting the evident, cross examining the witnesses and that -- opened him, of course. and keeping the evidence to make anything he wishes to make and has done that. >> armstrong will have to give back the bronze medal he won at the 2001 olympics and all of the medal and awards he won since 1998. and doug, thank you for being with us tonight. >> thank you. >> curious about your reaction to this. if he didn't take the drugs, why give up the fight? >> you have to remember this is not a new argument or a new story. this is something going on for over 15 years and since the
earliest allegations. this is a veas etof facts or strength of the argument as one being exhausted, as armstrong being contested, someone who is a professional athlete with the highest level of over 20 years, he's taken cumulatively over 500 tests. according to public record what, we have seen up to this point, he's not failed a single one. the argument and the concern for his side is if wada, the world antidopes agency, and the u.s. edition dictates its rules based on passage or failure of drug tests, yet i have never failed a test but you're going to convict me nonetheless. >> why would the president then say it's an admission of guilt he's giving up the fight? >> and this is a theory if you not guilty, you will fight until the end. at what point was i required to
prove my innocence? why report you required? from an agent standpoint, when i look at the other clients, it's concerning from a precedent standpoint. you have the opportunity to affectively and in a non- judicial setting, convict someone without physical evidence and without, as far as we know again, the alleged drug and some former colleagues and test abnormality and absent the fingerprints on the gun and itself meta foically speaking, there is a concern here among agents and athletes and the precedent it would set going forward. >> and we have seen the yellow armbands. how is this going to affect the fundraising efforts going forward through lystrong which raises money to fight cancer? >> that is a question n. recent years, that is where he gave the bulk of his energy and focus and this is an organization that raised over $500 million some strong bands
were mentiond -- started in 2 where are 04, and goes to his legacy -- 2004, and in december of '09, i talked to tiger woods and the impact his actions would have on his career and golf and i remember they're saying that tiger is not golf but bigger than golf. no matter what happens with tiger, it's not going to hurt the sport of golf or tiger in so far as fan popularity. you saw some of the sponsors drop off, but the fans never did and when you click on espn, he still leads the ticker and that is where he is. his legacy was not damaged in the context of popularity. when you ask about armstrong and how this is going to impact his cancer foundation, the question goes to his legacy and i have been there, whether it's the adults or my own father going through chemo therapy and radiation when lapse was at the
beginning of seven dominant consecutive years in a row to the children. i have seen firsthand the impact his actions have had. and so, i guess it's a very long way of saying will there be a bump? presumably, yes. and in the long run, the context, the legacy and the lasting footprint this man leaves, his real legacy will be in the lives he changeed through his cancer foundation and not the bike races he won. >> thank you for being with us tonight. we put the same question out to our facebook fans and see what they think. jennifer wrote i think it's b.s. he's passed other drug tests taken and they're going off another man's word who did get busted for doping. >> aaron said when they have been investigating for two years and have no evidence against him, it's harsh. we know how great of ab athlete he is and emily said i feel badly for him. he earned the titles and passed the doping tests. i wish he had continued to
fight the allegations. tonight, a possible alzheimer's disease treatment from drug maker eli lilly failed a slow mental decline in two late-stage studies and it showed promise in patients with mild cases of the disease and when data were combined, scientists saw a significant slowdown and there is no cure for the illness that affects a person's memory and their ability to think. a federal appeals court upheld the decision blocking graphic health warnings on cigarette packages. remember, these, the latest ruling found the label requirement violated free speech. some of the largest tobacco companies sued to block the mandate to include warnings showing photos of dead and six smokers on the package. dr. oz coming to d.c. december 5th and that is a great opportunity to get 15- minute physicals for free.
>> nice. >> and that is happening at howard university g. to www.myfoxdc.com to register and the link is at the top of the home page. >> and what a great experience. >> exactly. >> and -- that is no. coming up, a subway passenger jumps into action after a mother carrying her son falls on to the tracks. and this is no ordinary high-speed chase. why the woman said she could not stop.

and in an effort to lose police. the suspect finally crashed into a fence along the highway and was taken into custody. >> seems like they get the police chases in miami. >> or l.a. >> you're right. coming up, a teenager who said she was held as a sex slave and manages to escape from her capture. why neighbors say they had no clue what was going on. >> and we have seen big high school stadiums before but who shelled out millions for their team. >> and big changes are in store this weekend. stay with us.
