Andre Jordan, of Macon, allegedly displayed a knife to a teller while demanding money.
He ran out on foot and was nearly struck by a witness’s car, said Police Chief Mike Burns.
An officer, who happened to be across the road, spotted Jordan and apprehended him after a foot chase, Burns said. All the money from the bank was recovered.
