Police say this man, believed to be the suspect in the bank robbery earlier this week at Schuyler Savings, has been apprehended in Woodland Park.

Kearny Police Chief George King tells The Observer the man police believe committed the bank robbery at Schuyler Bank on Davis Avenue earlier this week has been arrested, without incident, earlier this afternoon.
