CINCINNATI - A man is in custody after he robbed a downtown Cincinnati bank, got into a cab then called 911 to turn himself in Friday afternoon, according to police.

The U.S. Bank at 125 E. Court Street was robbed around 2 p.m.

Police say a man handed a note to a teller demanding money. The suspect, later identified as Frank Coleman, fled from the bank with about $2,000 in cash then got into a cab on Main Street, according to police. He did not show a weapon during the robbery.

At 2:30 p.m., Coleman called 911 from the Convention Place Mall on Elm Street saying he robbed a bank and wanted to turn himself in, according to police. He was taken into custody a short timer later.

Coleman appeared in court Saturday morning for an arraignment. His next court date is Jan. 23.
