Investigators say, the male suspect walked into the SunTrust Bank at 6900 South Orange Blossom Trail, wearing a doctor’s mask and ball cap, implied he had a weapon and demanded money from the teller. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, the suspect fled on foot.

Later, a deputy approached a man matching the description of the suspect at 827 West Lancaster Road and a struggle ensued. But three bystanders observing the incident, jumped into action to assist the deputy in detaining the man, until backup arrived.

A doctor’s mask, ball cap and an undisclosed amount of cash were found in the suspect’s possession, investigators said.

Investigators have not released the identity of the suspect.
