A Bellport man has been charged with robbing a Patchogue bank Saturday afternoon, Suffolk County police said.
Jawan Davenport, 26, of McDonald Avenue, entered the TD Bank branch on East Main Street at 1:15 p.m. and gave a note to the teller demanding cash, police said.
The teller complied and Davenport fled in a silver Nissan Sentra, authorities said. Davenport was arrested a short time later by officers from the Fifth Precinct.
Davenport was charged with third-degree robbery and will be held overnight at the Fifth Precinct.
He is scheduled to be arraigned at First District Court in Central Islip on Sunday.
