CU staffer ambushed by robber in fair condition
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (4/18/12)--An employee of Freedom Financial FCU, Fort Wayne, Ind., was in fair condition after being struck several times in the face and head after she was ambushed by a robber Tuesday morning.

The employee was arriving to work before 8:30 a.m., when a man  approached her from behind and made her let him into the credit union (The Journal Gazette and Indiana's NewsCenter April 17).  When she could not open the vault, the man struck her with an unknown object, then fled with some cash from a cash drawer.

A police canine unit tracked the suspect to a parking lot of a nearby apartment complex, where police say he may have had a getaway car waiting.

The credit union staffer was taken to a hospital and is in fair condition, said the police. It was the third robbery at the $8.5 million asset credit union in the past six months. It was also held up on Nov. 18 and Dec. 16, said police.
