A 34-year-old Oakland man is in custody Tuesday after being arrested on suspicion of robbing a bank in Berkeley on Monday afternoon, police said.

Officers responded to a report of a robbery at the Mechanics Bank in the 2300 block of Shattuck Avenue at about 1:40 p.m.

The officers arrived in about two minutes and, after talking with witnesses and bank staff, broadcast the suspect's description including the
direction in which he fled, police said.

Several minutes later, the suspect, later identified as Antoine Heath, was spotted on Allston Way near Shattuck Avenue. He ran but was taken
into custody after a brief foot chase, police said.
