Man arrested minutes after Midtown bank robbery
A male suspect’s getaway from a Thursday afternoon bank robbery in Midtown was short-lived, according to investigators.
The robbery took place at about 12:30 p.m., at the Alaska USA Federal Credit Union branch on 36th Avenue near Arctic Boulevard, said FBI spokeswoman Staci Feger-Pellessier.
“He went in; no gun was seen, he handed the teller a note,” Feger-Pellessier said. “He was arrested a couple blocks away within 10 minutes.”
The suspect, Feger-Pellessier said, was 23-year-old Eyob Imlach.
