AKRON, OH (WOIO) - A bank robbery suspect is behind bars this hour.

After receiving an anonymous tip on last Friday's bank robbery at the Ohio Savings Bank, detectives from the Akron Police Department and the U.S. Marshals Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force converged on an apartment in Tallmadge.

Detectives arrested 34-year-old Michael L. Haislip and charged him with robbery. Haislip was identified by the bank surveillance photo released last week.

No word on when the bank bandit will appear in court at this time.
