Man Arrested After Bank Robbery in Manchester, NH

Police say they have made an arrest in a bank robbery in Manchester, New Hampshire, shortly after the crime occurred.

Thirty-nine-year-old John Faucher was arrested Monday afternoon.

He's accused of robbing the TD Bank on Franklin Street shortly after noon on Monday. Police say he passed a note to a teller saying he had a weapon and demanded cash and then made off with an undisclosed amount of money.

Police say three minutes after a description of the suspect was broadcast to police, an officer saw a man walking who fit that description. Faucher was arrested. Police say he's also charged with an attempted armed robbery of a Seven Eleven store on Sept. 28.

It was not immediately known if Faucher, who is homeless, is being represented by an attorney.
