Robber Bungles Two Bank Jobs

Compiled From Wire Services
 
Tags:briefly

A bank robber who tried to make a break for it needed some help from the bank manager to open the door for his getaway.

Two hours later, the same man apparently tried to rob a second bank, but made his demand to a woman who was in the bank to clean computers. No money was taken in either attempt.

In his first try, in Jamestown, about 50 miles northwest of Pittsburgh, the robber asked to see his safe deposit box, then took a teller to another room and demanded money.

When the manager walked in and told the teller she had a call, the teller fled, and so did the robber - but not before asking the bank manager to help him out the door.
