A man accused of robbing a Nicholson borough bank last Tuesday afternoon (Aug, 1) faces federal charges.

Dalton police responded to the First National Bank about 2:45 p.m. for the reported robbery and talked to witnesses, who gave a description of the suspect and his vehicle, Dalton police Chief Christopher Tolson said.

Officers provided the descriptions to surrounding departments and South Abington Twp. police arrested Wyatt Erb, 47, homeless, at a gas station on Northern Boulevard shortly thereafter, Tolson said.

No one was injured during the robbery and Erb did not show a weapon, Tolson said.

The FBI filed bank robbery charges against Erb in federal court Wednesday, according to court documents.
