A Boston man pleaded guilty Tuesday in federal court in Boston to robbing the Mansfield Bank in West Bridgewater and a branch of the RTN Federal Credit Union in Brookline in November 2016.
Stephen D. Williams, 55, pleaded guilty to two counts of bank robbery, according to a statements from the Plymouth County District Attorney’s office.
On November 22, 2016, an individual, later identified as Williams, entered a branch of the Mansfield Bank in West Bridgewater with a black semi-automatic firearm and demanded money, then fled the area in a dark-colored Volkswagen. Bank surveillance cameras recorded images of Williams during the robbery.
