HARPER WOODS, Mich. (AP) -

A dye pack has exploded inside a Detroit-area bank during an attempted robbery.

The Detroit News reports that police arrested a woman Monday afternoon as she was trying to leave the bank in Harper Woods, northeast of Detroit.

The woman was armed with a knife and also tried to rob a bank customer.

Dye packs typically are included with cash taken during robberies from banks.

Police say the dye pack in Monday's holdup exploded and caused several officers, customers and employees to experience skin and lung irritation.
