Groton police are looking for the man who robbed a Citizen's Bank on Wednesday afternoon.

Groton police have arrested the man accused of robbing a Citizen's Bank on Wednesday, Sept. 25.

Shelden Schuler, 39, is accused of walking into the bank at 816 Long Hill Road around 3 p.m., threatened the teller and took an unknown amount of money. Police said he fled on foot.

A weapon was involved in the robbery but no one was injured, police said.
