Broadway woman jailed after bank robbery attempt

A 37-year-old Broadway woman was arrested and jailed shortly after she allegedly tried to rob the M&T Bank branch at 1300 Jefferson Avenue early Tuesday afternoon.

Nikie Robertson was arrested by Buffalo police shortly after she allegedly ran out of the bank after handing a teller a note saying she wanted money and she had a gun. Apparently panicking she ran from the bank without any money and no weapon was found on Robertson who remained jailed at the Erie County Holding Center on a first-degree attempted robbery charge.
