LAKEVILLE, Mass. (AP) - Police say a Weymouth man who robbed a Lakeville bank called a taxi to take him from the scene after several attempts to steal a car failed.

Michael Shuman was held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to charges including unarmed robbery, larceny over $250, and three counts of breaking and entering into a motor vehicle.

Police tell The Patriot Ledger (https://bit.ly/1nCoeiH ) the 34-year-old Shuman robbed the Bridgewater Savings Bank on Wednesday, and fled on foot.

He allegedly tried to steal several cars at a nearby MBTA commuter rail station lot, before calling a cab.

He was arrested in the parking lot of the Hanover Mall as he was getting out of the cab about an hour after the robbery.
