Mentor Police have arrested a man who is though to have robbed the PNC Bank on Mentor Avenue earlier this afternoon.
The Mentor man, whose name has not been released yet, was arrested after an officer spotted him driving on Mentor Avenue near the intersection with Cadle Road shortly after the robbery, Mentor Police Lt. Tom Powers said.
The robbery occurred at 1 p.m. today.
A man entered the bank, wearing a black leather hat, striped collared shirt and dark colored pants, according to the Mentor Police Facebook page. He handed the teller a note, demanding money.

The man then fled from the bank on foot.
Nobody was hurt during the robbery.
While the suspect is in custody, Mentor Police are still searching for the money that was taken. Officers did not find it on the man and police were still searching his car when police last released information.
"We're hoping the money is in the car obviously," Powers said.
