HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

Hartford police were able to quickly arrest the man who robbed a bank Friday after he was seen by a plain-clothed officer.

Police said they were called shortly after 1 p.m. by staff at the Key Bank located at 1700 Park Street after a man walked into the facility and handed the teller a note demanding cash.

Bank employees were able to give police a description of the suspect which was broadcasted out to other officers in the area.

Within minutes an officer spotted a man matching the description and carrying cash in his hand.  The man was detained and later identified to be the bank robbery suspect, 47-year-old Angel Colon of Hartford.

Colon was placed under arrest and charged with robbery first-degree and larceny second-degree.

Police located $428 on Colon which was believed to all have been stolen from the bank.
