PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (WSVN) — Police have arrested an 86-year-old woman in connection to a robbery at a West Philadelphia bank.

According to Fox 29, 86-year-old Emily Coakley has been charged with aggravated assault, robbery and several other crimes.

Police said Coakley went into a TD Bank with her walker, pulled out a revolver and demanded $400 from the tellers, Fox 29 reports.

Surrounded by police and pushing a walker, Coakley was escorted out of the bank and placed in handcuffs.
