Tucson police tracked down and arrested a suspected bank robber at around 10 a.m. on Wednesday. 
 
The suspect has been identified as 31-year-old Randolph Young. He was transported and booked into the Pima County Jail for Robbery and other unrelated warrants. 
 
Officers responded to the repot of the bank robbery at the Bank of the West located at 3175 N. Swan Road.
 
Prior to arrival, they learned an adult male suspect entered the bank and demanded money from the teller. The suspect was given an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene on foot. The employees advised no one was injured during the robbery.
 
Officers quickly converged on the area. As they began their canvass, Captain Hall located a male matching the description of the robber hiding in a bush. The male immediately fled on foot and Captain Hall gave chase. With the assistance of additional officers, the male was apprehended without further incident. The officers were able to recover a bag filled with clothing and money.
 
Detectives continued the investigation and learned the teller recognized the male as soon as he entered the bank as a male wanted in connection to a bank robbery that occurred last on August 6 at the Wells Fargo Bank located at 1370 N. Silverbell Road
