The State Security Court (SSC) on Wednesday sentenced a man to 15 years with hard labour for the armed robbery of a bank in Abdoun.

In January, the police arrested a suspect in connection with an armed robbery of the Etihad Bank's branch in Abdoun neighbourhood and retrieved the JD98,000 ($137,934) that was stolen from the bank.

The suspect allegedly entered the bank wearing a baseball cap and holding a gun, and demanded cash from the teller.
