WARR ACRES, Oklahoma – Warr Acres police officers caught and arrested a man suspected of robbing a Bank of Oklahoma branch in Warr Acres Friday morning.

The bank is located inside the Homeland Grocery Store at 5857 Northwest Expressway. The FBI says the robber walked into the store at 10:07 a.m. and approached a teller. Witnesses say he handed the bank teller a note that read, "Give me all the money out of the drawer and no one will be hurt."

The employee complied, and the suspect left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The man did not show a weapon during the robbery and no one was hurt.

Bank employees described the robber to Warr Acres police. Officers quickly established a perimeter around the bank and saw someone who matched the description.

They arrested 21-year-old Christian Martinez of Warr Acres. He faces a charge of bank robbery.
