A 45-year-old Tacoma man was arrested Monday after allegedly holding up a Key Bank branch.

The robber walked into the bank at 2633 N. Pearl St. about 4 p.m., approached a teller and demanded money. After receiving cash, he fled south on a mountain bike.

Officers responded within three minutes and found him pedaling south on N. Pearl Street, police spokesman Mark Fulghum said.

The money was recovered.
