COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Deputies with the Richland County Sheriff's Department have arrested a suspect wanted in a Monday bank robbery that may also be connected with another robbery last week. 

Kison Walters, according to sheriff's department spokesman Lt. Curtis Wilson, will be charged with entering a bank with intent to steal in connection with a bank robbery at the TD Bank on Two Notch Road back on June 30.

Walters has not yet been charged in connection with the Monday robbery. Deputies responded to South State Bank, located at 2010 Clemson Road, following a bank robbery call around 1 p.m. Monday. 

The suspect entered the bank and handed the teller a note demanding money. The suspect fled the scene with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Shortly after being arrested, Walters escaped, and deputies searched for him off Pineview Road in Lower Richland. Walters has since been re-detained by deputies.
