WOODBRIDGE, Va. (AP) — Prince William County Police are looking for a bicyclist who tried to rob a bank by riding to a drive-thru teller speaker and claiming to have a bomb in his backpack.

It happened about 10 a.m. Wednesday at the Bank of America in Woodbridge. Police say a man on a bike approached one of the drive-thru speakers and demanded money.
