Man robs bank at Wal-Mart

A Provident Bank station inside an Abingdon Wal-Mart was robbed Wednesday, state police said. At 4:47 p.m., troopers from the Bel Air barracks responded to the store in the 400 block of Constant Friendship Blvd. on a report that a man had approached the station, slammed his right hand on the counter from inside his coat pocket and demanded $2,000 cash, police said. No weapon was displayed, though witnesses told police they believed he was holding a gun in the pocket. The man fled the store with the cash, police said. Police ask anyone with information to call 410-879-2101.
