After a couple days with three murders, there was a return to bank robberies, a frequent happening since the economy soured and drug problem escalates.

BANK ROBBERY - A man dressed in all black went into the White Hall bank (Marion Co.) and gave tellers the impression that he was armed. Police were able to get to the scene quickly, but the man had already gotten away.

PThe man did get away with some cash, but fortunately no one was hurt.

White Hall Police, Marion County Sheriff's deputies, Fairmont Police, U.S. Marshals, and the FBI all responded to the scene.

BANK ROBBERY - There was a bank robbery in Glasgow, Kanawha County, Friday, a woman walking into the City National Bank and demanding cash.

Police say the woman walked up to the counter and handed the clerk a note saying she was armed and wanted money, although she never showed the weapon.

The woman then ran from the bank before officers got on scene and was able to get away with some cash, but they are not saying how much. Police have already released a surveillance picture of the suspect.

Cedar Grove Community School was on lock down while police searched for the suspect.

MAN STABBED - A man was stabbed in Charleston, but instead of being the victim, police say he is the suspect.

Police say 46-year-old Jeffery Brock's girlfriend stabbed him in the back twice after he allegedly beat and chocked her.

Brock allegedly ran from police after being stabbed, but was found a short time later.

Charleston Police say the girlfriend acted in self defense and will not be charged.

"She was in a situation where a much larger, stronger male was trying to cause her serious, bodily injury. And in those circumstances, self defense kicks in. And sometimes you just have to do what you have to do to defend yourself," said Chief of Detectives, Lt. Steve Cooper.

Brock is listed in serious condition at CAMC. He will be charged with domestic battery.
