Bank teller threatened during robbery in Marina

A woman threatened to shoot a bank teller during a robbery in the Marina district on Monday morning, police said.

The thief, described as a woman in her 30s, asked the teller to exchange her coins for cash at the bank on the 2000 block of Chestnut Street around 10 a.m., police said.

But when the money drawer was open, the woman told the female teller to hand over all the money from the drawer and threatened to shoot her, police said.

The teller, a 23-year-old woman, gave the robber the money. She made off on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

No detailed description of the suspect has been released by police.
