Robber Held Up
(2008-06-18)
(wgvu) - Western Wayne County authorities
say a gun-toting Comerica Bank customer foiled an attempted
robbery.
Fifty-three-year-old Joseph Webster of Washtenaw County was
arraigned Tuesday in 35th District Court on bank robbery, armed
robbery and habitual offender charges, which can bring up to life
imprisonment.
Canton Township police tell WXYZ-TV and The Ann Arbor News
Webster pretended to have a bomb Monday and demanded a teller give
him money. A co-worker alerted Nabil Fawzi, who has a
concealed-weapon permit. Fawzi held Webster at gunpoint until
police arrived.
He's jailed on a $100,000 cash bond pending a June 27
preliminary examination.
The Associated Press couldn't immediately determine if Webster
has a lawyer.
