MERIDEN — Police arrested a 31-year-old woman who allegedly tried robbing a Wells Fargo Bank branch on Tuesday morning using physical force.

Priscilla Jones jumped over the tellers’ counter, shoved a bank teller and tried pulling money from a cash drawer, police said.

She was unable to get any money and fled on foot as soon as she heard that police officers were on their way, police said.

Bank customers pointed Jones out to arriving officers. They immediately apprehended the suspect, who was then identified by the bank teller.

Jones is charged with criminal attempt to commit second-degree robbery, criminal attempt to commit third-degree robbery and breach of peace.

She is in custody with bail set at $50,000. She is scheduled to appear April 29 at Superior Court in Meriden.
