A bank is suing the man charged in a Dec. 26 robbery in which he is accused of stealing $38,000. Huntingdon Valley Bank is seeking the stolen money plus nearly $1,100 for lost employee wages, management hours and other costs incurred.

The lawyer for 48-year-old Richard Boyle of Plumstead says he can't understand why his client is being sued, since records show his client has no assets.

Defense lawyer Craig Penglase says he would expect that his client would be ordered to pay restitution when he is sentenced.

Margot Mohsberg of the American Bankers Association says she has never seen a similar suit.
