An Assonet man was arrested Monday afternoon in connection with an unarmed robbery at the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank on Palmer avenue in Falmouth, according to Falmouth police.

In a statement posted on the police department website, at 2:55 p.m. Monday police responded to reports of a bank robbery at the Falmouth branch of the Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank located at 397 Palmer avenue. Witnesses told police that a lone male suspect fled on foot with an “undisclosed” amount of money.

While police searched the surrounding area for the suspect, officer Thomas Maguire saw a man emerging from the woods near Depot avenue, according to the statement. Officer Maguire confronted the man and identified him as 31-year-old Michael McLane, the statement said.

Officer Maguire discovered that the suspect had an outstanding warrant and placed him under arrest. According to the police statement, the suspect struggled with Officer Maguire upon his arrest “but the officer was able to restrain him without injuring him until other officers arrived to assist.”

After backup arrived, the suspect was placed in handcuffs and brought to his feet. A video posted by the Cape Cod Times captures footage of the arrest.

“The continuing investigation uncovered evidence that linked McLane to the bank robbery,” the police statement said.

Mr. McLane was charged with unarmed robbery, larceny, assault and battery on a police officer and resisting arrest, according to the statement.

The Barnstable county sheriff’s office, Massachusetts State Police and FBI assisted with the investigation, the statement said.
