Man Charged with Robbing Bank in McCandless
Ronald Nelson is also charged with robbing an East Liberty bank.
McCandless Police filed a single charge of robbery Wednesday against the East Liberty resident.
Nelson is in the Allegheny County Jail with bail set at $150,000.
An Oct. 24 preliminary hearing is scheduled before Magisterial District Judge William K. Wagner in the McCandless case.
The man did not show a weapon after walking into the bank branch at 1701 Duncan Ave. at 9:15 a.m., according to McCandless police. He demanded money in a note he handed to the teller.
The suspect then ran out of the bank and down an embankment, jumping into a red getaway car driven by another person. The red car drove off towards Sample Road, police said.
