He’s accused of robbing a bank, then offering to buy a round of drinks at a nearby bar.

34-year-old Jonathan Windon of Sandusky was arrested Friday evening, three hours after a hold-up at U.S. Bank on Cleveland Road. According to reports, Windon walked into the bank just before 3pm, and gave a teller a note demanding money. The note threatened harm, if she didn’t comply. She gave him a stack of cash, and he fled on foot. With the help of witnesses, Windon was arrested at 6pm, at the Brass Pelican on Perkins Avenue. He still had the cash, and earlier, had offered to buy drinks for people at the bar. He remains in the Erie County Jail, charged with aggravated robbery.
