King County Sheriff deputies arrested a male suspect who robbed a Chase Bank branch in Kenmore at around 2:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

According to Cindi West, public information officer for the King County Sheriff’s Office, the suspect displayed a note and fled the bank — which is located in the 6700 block of Northeast 181st Street — with an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect then went to a Jimmy John’s Gourmet Sandwiches shop nearby and told a customer he had robbed a bank and needed a ride. The customer refused and the suspect stole his phone.

The suspect then ran across the street to, Espresso Works, a nearby coffee stand and gave an employee five $100 bills for a ride. The employee refused.

He then went to the library nearby and hid in some bushes, where he was caught and arrested.
