Recently, Atlantic Coast Federal Bank of Jacksonville had a scare. A man entered the bank and attempted to get money from a bank teller. She told him “no” and he left. Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office has not arrested anyone for the crime.
In Florida, this would be considered an Attempted Robbery. The prosecutor would have to prove that the man did
1. Unlawfully by force, violence, assault, or putting in fear
2. Attempt to take money from the bank telller.
