Peoria police say a bank robbery suspect has been arrested, but his accomplice remains at large.

Authorities said Monday that 28-year-old Charles Ross was taken into custody without incident Sept. 28.
According to police, Ross is accused of entering a bank last August and handing over a note to the teller indicating he was armed. He then fled the bank on a bicycle, which was later recovered.
He is suspected of doing the same thing at a bank in Sun City on Sept. 25. Police say Ross went into another bank 30 minutes later and repeated his plan.
Surveillance footage shows he had a getaway driver, identified as a 43-year-old man.
The man was last seen driving a Ford F-150.
It's not clear if Ross has an attorney.
