LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - After a debit card was swiped from a woman's purse in a bank office, the man accused of doing it blamed it on his 6-year-old son. However, that boy told police he didn't take it.

Now, Sean Mattingly, 25, of Louisville, is charged with unlawful transaction with a minor, receiving a stolen debit card and third-degree burglary.

This happened Aug. 31 at the First Federal Savings Bank on Hurstbourne Parkway. 

The bank said Mattingly has no account with them and had no legitimate reason to be in the employee's office.

Mattingly went into a worker's office, according to an arrest warrant, and when the worker returned she saw him sitting in a chair going through her purse.

When she noticed her debit card missing, she followed the suspect and demanded he return her card.

According to police, Mattingly then gave the victim her card back, blaming his son, whom denied to officers he took the card.
