Robbery suspect arrested in Everett

SALEM — Police have arrested a suspect in the robbery at Eastern Bank on Congress Street on Friday afternoon.

Albin Antonio Tejeda, 23, of 425 Ferry St., Everett, was booked in Salem around 10:50 Friday night, according to police. He is charged with armed robbery.

Shortly before 2 p.m. Friday, a man held up the bank at 19 Congress St., showing a note to the teller demanding cash and saying he had a vest bomb, police said.

He made off with an undetermined amount of cash.

According to the incident log, officers responded to the bank at 1:52 p.m. and determined that it had already been locked by employees following the robbery.

Police checked the area on foot — including near the Victoria’s Station restaurant on Wharf Street — but found nothing suspicious.

After an investigation, Tejeda was spotted near his home in Everett and was arrested by Salem detectives with the help of Everett police, according to the log.
