DOVER, Del.- Police say a man accused of holding up a Dover bank late Wednesday morning was arrested a short time later.
Police said that at around 10:30 a.m., the suspect entered the M&T Bank, located at 1001 Walker Road, and acted as if he had a handgun and handed the teller a note demanding money. He then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.
The description of the suspect was put out to the responding officers. Police said an officer on patrol was checking the wood line in the area of the Square Club on College Road when he confronted the suspect, later identified as 33-year-old Michael J. Taylor of Dover. The officer took Taylor into custody at gunpoint, police said.
Taylor was charged with first-degree robbery. Bond information was not immediately available.
The investigation led to the recovery of $4,000 taken from the bank during the robbery, according to police. There were no reported injuries during the incident.
