JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A man is in jail tonight after he tried unsuccessfully to rob a bank on Merrill Road.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office responded to the Fifth/Third Bank Monday afternoon after a man on a bicycle tried to show a weapon inside the bank.

Police say the suspect tried to enter through a door that only opens from the inside and he then fled the scene.

Officers were able to catch up with him a short time later and arrested him.

Police did not identify the suspect.

Police say no money was taken and no one was injured.

The investigation is ongoing.
