    Police say some bullet-resistant glass helped prevent a bank robbery in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

    Police say a man wearing a nylon pantyhose mask entered the Woodlawn Credit Union at about noon Tuesday brandishing a handgun and demanding money.

    But police say the tellers, who were behind the bullet-resistant glass, simply walked away from the counter.

    The would-be robber then fled. Nobody was injured.

    No arrests have been made.
