Bank Robbery Suspect, 16, Arrested, Charged

July 7, 2013

HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - Police in Harrisonburg have charged a 16-year-old with felony bank robbery following the armed holdup of a BB&T branch on Monday.

Police are not releasing the suspect's name because of his age. They say additional charges will be filed against the youth.

The branch was held up by a man who displayed a handgun then fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police tell the Daily News Record (http://bit.ly/13AsvrY) they are seeking any links between the Monday heist and an April l5 robbery at the Bank of America.
