MANSFIELD —  Mansfield police arrested a suspected bank robber overnight.

Just before 4:45 p.m., state police said they were called a TD Bank branch at 95 Storrs Road, that the caller said was being robbed by a man wearing a baseball hat, glasses and sweat shirt.

Police said the man later demanded money from the teller and once he got an undisclosed amount, he took off through the northeast exit to the front of the mall. The man then got into a light-color smaller-size pickup and drove off.

An off-duty UConn police officer saw the truck, and it was later found parked at the Hawthorn Motel at 191 Spencer Street in Manchester. Police arrested Mervin Bundy, 42, of Willimantic.

State police said charges related to the bank robbery are pending and Bundy was taken to the hospital for evaluation due to medical issue.

Bundy was charged with reckless driving and numerous drug charges. His bail was set at $100,000 and he is due in Manchester Court Thursday.
