Would-be RI bank robber thwarted by bullet-resistant glass

Police say some bullet-resistant glass helped prevent a bank robbery in Pawtucket.

Police say a man wearing a nylon pantyhose mask entered the Woodlawn Credit Union at about noon Tuesday brandishing a handgun and demanding money.

But police say the tellers, who were behind the bullet-resistant glass, simply walked away from the counter.

The would-be robber then fled. Nobody was injured.

No arrests have been made.
