Watercooler Talk
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A St. Paul bank teller refused to hand over cash to a gunman and lived to tell about it. Authorities said the would-be robber walked into the Cherokee State Bank on Tuesday afternoon. He pointed a handgun at a teller and demanded money, but when she refused, he ran away with nothing.

St. Paul police spokesman Sgt. Paul Schnell said it’s best for victims confronted by a robber to comply. Schnell said, “Sometimes, they respond as this man did, but sometimes they don’t.”

The FBI described the suspect as a white man in his 30s, 5 foot 8 to 6 feet tall, with a slender to medium build. He was wearing a black coat, blue jeans, a white bandanna around his neck, and a red baseball cap.
