Eighteen employees were briefly held hostage yesterday morning at a Rodgers Forge bank while a robber waited for the manager to arrive and unlock the vault. But the police showed up first and, after a short chase, arrested a suspect, authorities said.
As the unidentified suspect attended a bail hearing last night, police searched for an accomplice.
None of the employees at Bradford Federal Savings Bank at 6900 York Road was hurt. The incident began about 8:30 a.m. when an employee unlocking the bank was pushed inside by a man wearing a bandana.
