A man suspected of a robbery at the PNC Bank on Towson
University's campus was apprehended Monday morning, according to Baltimore County police.
Police said the robbery took place around 10:32 a.m. in the bank branch at the University Union. A man came into the bank and demanded money from a letter, but he did not show a weapon, police said.
Police said he ran out with an undisclosed amount of cash. A county police officer saw a man matching his description sitting on a bench inside the Liberal Arts Building on campus, and after a brief chase, the man was taken into custody and the money was recovered, police said.
No one was hurt, according to police. The university instituted its communication system to alert people on campus to the possible robbery, said Towson University spokeswoman Carol Dunsworth.
