FORT MYERS, Fla. - Fort Myers police made a quick arrest in connection with the robbery of the Bank of America Thursday morning.

Police say a black male dressed as a woman entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. The suspect fled the business on a bicycle with an unknown amount of cash.

Ironically, this same bank was robbed by two men dressed as women in August 2013.  Only one of those two suspects was arrested.

Detectives and uniformed officers tracked down 23-year-old Roy Keefer Gordon in an apartment in the 3700 block of Metro Parkway.  Items found inside the apartment linked Gordon to the crime.

Gordon will be charged with robbery.
