Armed man robs credit union, police say

NEWPORT NEWS — Police said a man robbed a Virginia Educators Credit Union here shortly before noon Wednesday.

Dispatchers fielded a call about an alarm activation at the credit union at around 11:55 a.m. As police were approaching the location in 800 block of Main Street, the call was upgraded to a robbery.

Police said the suspect, who was armed with a gun, went into the bank, jumped the counter and took cash.

He was “taken into custody” during a traffic stop in in the area of 74th Street and Chestnut Avenue, police said.

“There were no injuries to the bank employees or the five Newport News School students that were taking a financial class inside,” said Master Police Officer Brandon Maynard, Newport News Police spokesman. “The students were in a separate room inside the bank during the robbery.”

Information about the suspect’s identity and charges was not immediately released.
