ORBISONIA, Pa. (WHTM)- A Steelton man was arrested after attempting to rob the Community State Bank of Orbisonia, Waterfall Branch, shortly before 11 a.m. on Wednesday.
Bank employees reportedly that a man wearing a coat with a beanie cap pulled over his face and carrying a large bag approached the bank and tried to enter. The bank employees say they refused to open the doors and watched the man remove the beanie as he fled across the street into a yellow Chevrolet Cavalier.

According to authorities, Miles confessed to all of the robberies in Cumberland county and the attempted bank robbery.
