At 11:29 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 5, police responded to a report of a robbery at the Sterling Savings Bank at Northeast 181st Avenue and East Burnside Street, said Officer Ben Costigan, Gresham Police spokesman.

The robber handed the teller a note demanding money but did not imply having a weapon. He then fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of money. While police were responded to the scene, a witness reported seeing the suspect enter a business across the street from the bank.

Inside the business, police found the suspect. He reportedly fought with police, but was arrested and lodged in jail.
