Authorities say a man in a motorized wheelchair robbed a Merritt Island bank and was arrested minutes later.

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office reports that the man entered a Space Coast Credit Union Friday afternoon and demanded money.

He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and took off down the street in the wheelchair.

Deputies caught up with the man about 500 feet from the bank and arrested him.

The sheriff's office did not release the name of the suspect. Charges are pending.
