A man was arrested minutes after he robbed a Wells Fargo bank on Broadway this morning.

At about 9:40 this morning, a man in his forties or fifties, wearing a red bandana, Army green jacket and black and yellow shoes robbed the Wells Fargo bank in the 400 Block of Broadway Avenue East.  Officers responded to the call within minutes of the broadcast.  Witnesses stated that the suspect left the bank on foot and walked away.  Officers located him several blocks away when he ducked into a Top Pot Doughnuts in the 600 Block of Summit Avenue East.  Staff inside the store said the man was acting suspicious, and asked them to call him a cab.  Officers arrived minutes later and took the man into custody.  Several witnesses positively identified the suspect.  He will be interviewed by robbery detectives and then booked into the King County Jail.
