Police Respond to Attempted Bank Robbery Downtown

A police spokesman confirmed the attempted robbery at the Centre Street Bank of America, near Stop & Shop.

Police are responding to a reported attempted bank robbery at the Centre Street Bank of America just a little before 7 p.m. Thursday night. 

While no further information beyond this confirmation was available, scanner reports indicate a witness told police the man threatened to use a gun but did not produce it. 

Police were reportedly looking for a white male in his late 20s, wearing a grey hoodie, black baseball cap, grey sweatpants and a scarf. 

Witnesses on the MBTA reported that the Malden Center trains were briefly stopped as police looked for suspects there, but have resumed service. 

More information as it becomes available.

Alicia. the majority of the comments here are along the lines of how much MOST of us are disgusted by welfare fraud. No one picked on any poor people. Kelly is the resident 'martyr' here. We don't need another one. And you're welcome!

Clearly, that second EBT did not belong to her, and the cashier should have confiscated that second card.

cashier confiscating EBT card - that's not their job, it's the state's job, the government's job, THE COUNTRY'S JOB! pretty sure that is not on the job description of an 8.00 per hour cashier
