Police arrest an elderly woman in connection with a bank robbery in Pennsylvania .

86-year-old Emily Coakley faces nine charges including aggravated assault and robbery.

Authorities say she entered the TD Bank in Philadelphia on Tuesday with her walker before holding up a teller at gun point and demanding $400.

Sources say the woman may have felt the money was owed to her, after she thought she had been shorted while making a withdrawal on Monday.

Coakley has since been released on her own recognizance.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for next month.
