A teen robbed a Haifa bank on Wednesday, only to be apprehended hours later at his home.


The armed 16-year-old walked into a branch of the Postal Bank in the northern city's Kiryat Haim neighborhood in the afternoon with his shirt pulled over his head. He demanded money from the cashier, who placed a few thousands shekels in his bag. He grabbed the loot and fled.
