Bank robber who fled on bike captured

Columbia police have captured the man they say robbed a bank and then escaped on a bicycle.

Tommy Pittman, 43, was arrested Thursday night and is being held at the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center, according to a Columbia Police Department report.

Pittman allegedly robbed the First Citizens Bank on Rosewood Drive at 4:35 p.m. Thursday. He fled with an undisclosed amount of money while riding a bicycle.

Witnesses and surveillance video led investigators to name Pittman as a suspect. He turned himself in at the police headquarters.
