An Anchorage man has been arrested after authorities say he robbed a downtown bank with a hammer.

Court documents say 61-year-old Alan Bronson Rice threatened a Key Bank teller with the hammer on Wednesday and briefly got away with more than $1,000.

The documents allege he pulled the hammer from a bag, put it on the counter and told the teller: "I need your money."

The Anchorage Daily News reports a Good Samaritan followed Rice as he left the bank, and pointed him out to a responding officer. Rice has been jailed on felony bank robbery charges.
