The suspect fled to the Dupont Circle Metro, where police were able to catch up with him.

D.C. Police have identified an alleged bank robber who tried to use the Metro as his getaway vehicle.

The Metropolitan Police Department says officers arrested 57-year-old Scott Lee Feuer of southeast Washington D.C. in connection with the robbery Friday.

Police say the robbery happened at a Wells Fargo bank on K Street at about 10 a.m. Friday. Police asked Metro Transit Police to hold trains at the Dupont Circle stop after the suspect fled in that direction and authorities were able to arrest Feuer on a train bound for Silver Spring.

Police say detectives are investigating whether the suspect may have been involved in other crimes.
