Student arrested for in-school branch robbery
OKLAHOMA CITY (1/24/13)--In what could be a first, a high school student has been arrested after allegedly trying to rob an in-school, student-run credit union in Oklahoma City.

The incident happened at about 11 a.m. Tuesday at a branch of Oklahoma City-based Tinker FCU located inside John Marshall High School.

Rayqwonn Chatman, 16, is in custody on a complaint of attempted armed robbery (okcfox.com Jan. 22).

According to local reports, a teller was helping two other students when the robbery suspect allegedly walked up to the counter, with hands inside the pockets of his hooded jacket. He raised his right hand while it was still inside the pocket, indicating he had a gun, and told her to give him some money.

The teller told him the suspect he could be in a lot of trouble, and a witness urged him to leave. He refused and continued to stand at the counter. The teller refused to give him money and he left. Then the teller called police (NewsOK.com and NewsOn.com Jan. 22).

Chatman was arrested in the school gym.

The student branch opened in August as part of the school's academy of finance. Students can work at the branch as part of their career training, said NewsOK.com.
