GREENWOOD, NS – An arrest has been made one day after an attempted robbery was reported Feb. 1 in Greenwood.

A 17-year-old man was using the Scotiabank ATM on Central Ave in Greenwood at 9:16 p.m. when a man allegedly came up to him, told him he was carrying a weapon, and demanded he withdraw all funds from his bank account.
