#Bridgeport, CT — — A 54-year-old man was arrested for his role in robbing a bank this morning.

According to Officer Kevin Cronin, two males entered the Webster Bank branch at 3546 Main St. shortly after 9 a.m. One brandished an orange-colored weapon and the males ordered customers to the ground.

The men fled the bank with cash but police received information that the suspects got into a black vehicle. Sgt. James Remele subsequently observed a vehicle matching that description but lost sight of it. The Acura was located unoccupied at Park and Olive streets.

Police observed a possible suspect in the area and detained him. Employees of the bank came to the scene and identified the man, Tyrone King, of Atlantic Street, as one of the robbers. Cash and an orange flare gun were recovered.
