HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — UPDATE: Hartford police have arrested the man wanted in connection with a bank robbery.

35-year-old Eric Jimenez was arrested on Capitol Avenue today, after a brief foot chase with police. He has been wanted for questioning after a robbery at the People’s United Bank at 290 Franklin Avenue last week.

Police say a suspect entered the bank just before 11:30 a.m. Saturday, and handed the teller a note that said, “I have a gun, quiet.” The suspect then handed the same teller another note that said, “I have a gun and a bomb, give me money.” The teller grabbed money from her drawer and handed it to the suspect, who shoved the money in his pockets and left the bank. Police say the suspect got away with $3,160.

No one was injured during this incident.
