Robbery is the taking of another's property by use of force or intimidation and is a very serious and troubling crime. Victims of robbery are frightened by the severe invasion of their personal well-being and also are deprived of their valuable property or money. Banks are a common target because they hold large quantities of money and are easily accessible to the public.
The ScrantonTimes-Tribune reports that First National Bank on Business Route 6 in Archbald was robbed shortly before eleven this morning. The robber allegedly demanded money from the teller, without ever displaying a weapon, and then fled on foot with a bag full of cash. Eye-witness reports led to the detention of the suspect shortly after the robbery.
