A Garden City South man was arrested early Wednesday in connection with a bank robbery in that community earlier this month, Nassau County police said.

Patrick Pelayo, 43, of Kensington Road South, was charged with third-degree robbery in the Nov. 8 incident, police said.

On that day at 5:45 p.m., a man had entered Valley Bank, 339 Nassau Blvd., approached a teller and demanded money, police said. After obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, the man — described as wearing a plaid baseball hat, sunglasses, and a dust mask covering his face — fled and was last seen on foot heading north on Nassau Boulevard.

No injuries were reported in the robbery, police said.

Bail was set at $15,000 bond or cash.
