SAN DIEGO -- Police arrested a man after an attempted downtown bank robbery Saturday afternoon.

SDPD confirmed that a bank teller pushed a panic button just before 3 p.m. after a white male dressed in a black shirt and pants handed her a demand note. Sgt. Robert Hawkins said the teller was able to delay the suspect while police were called.

Officers were able to surround the building before the 34-year-old suspect left the bank, and they took him into custody as soon as he walked out of the building.

SDPD said that the man did not show a weapon, and that no one was hurt. The bank did not report any lost funds.

The botched robbery took place at the Chase Bank at 101 West Broadway St. downtown.
