Beit Shemesh bank raid suspect held
Police arrested a 25-year-old man Thursday afternoon for allegedly robbing a Beit Shemesh bank earlier in the day.
The robber entered a Bank Hapoalim branch in the morning and handed a teller a note reading, "Give me the money or I will shoot you," according to Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby.
The teller handed over NIS 16,000, and the man fled.
Police located the suspect based on a description provided by bank employees. Officers arrested him as he was changing his clothes at his home, police said. The money, however, has not been found.
