Tacoma police said a teenager was arrested today after robbing a bank in the North End.

The boy walked into a Key Bank branch in the 3900 block of N. 26th Street about 11:45 a.m. and demanded money. He implied that he had a weapon but never displayed one, police spokeswoman Loretta Cool said.

After filling an Adidas shoebox with money, the boy ran west on N. 26th Street. Officers found him shortly after the robbery and booked him into Remann Hall Juvenile Detention Center.
