Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say two men suspected in the armed robbery of a Tucson bank are in custody.

Tucson police said Thursday that 20-year-old Evan Curtis Hill and 48-year-old John Murphy each have been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of armed robbery and aggravated robbery.

Both men were arrested after a chase through the city's midtown area.

Police say a 911 call came in just before noon Wednesday about an armed robbery at the Bank of the West.

Witnesses say a man entered the bank with a handgun, demanded money and left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police say an officer spotted a vehicle in the area believed to be linked to the robbery.

The officer chased the car and the two men inside were eventually arrested.
