Police in New Jersey arrest a man suspected of robbing a bank in Bensalem, Bucks County.

Bensalem Detectives tracked 42-year old Nicholas Giorno, Jr. to a hotel in New Jersey where Mt. Ephraim Police arrested him late Tuesday night.

Bensalem Detectives say Giorno walked into the TD Bank at 2751Street Road just after 12:00 p.m. on Monday and presented a demand note. Officials say the note implied he had a gun, but he never displayed a weapon.

He fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash.

Officials say Giorno, who lives on the 1200 block of Poquessing Creek Road in Philadelphia, is being held in New Jersey awaiting extradition to Bucks County.

He is expected to be charged with robbery and related offenses.
