CruiserMANCHESTER, NH — On January 10, 2015 at approx. 8:30 a.m. Manchester Police responded to St. Mary’s Bank, 200 McGregor St., following a 911 call for an attempted armed robbery.

According to a police narrative of the incident, the male victim reported that he had withdrawn cash from the ATM located inside of the bank lobby. While walking back to his vehicle, a woman approached him and pointed what appeared to be a firearm into his back. The robber demanded the man drive her to another location.

The man told police he turned around enough to see that the weapon in his back was a BB gun. He decided to try and take the gun away from the robber, which he did.

At that time the robber fled on foot. A search of the area assisted by a police dog did not result in a capture or arrest.

Police are looking for the robber, described as a Hispanic female, about 5-foot-10 inches tall, last seen wearing a dark colored coat and dark colored pants. Detectives are working on getting video footage of the incident. Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact detectives at 668-8711 or Manchester Crimeline at 624-4040.
