Police apprehend suspect in Prudential Center bank robbery

A masked man robbed a bank at the Prudential Center at gunpoint Thursday afternoon, making off with about $3,000 before Boston police officers captured him after a brief pursuit, authorities said.

The holdup in a bustling section of the city’s downtown area occurred shortly after 1:30 p.m., when the suspect, whom police identified as Kenneth Robinson, 53, allegedly burst into the Santander Bank branch at 800 Boylston St. brandishing a gun and demanding money, police said.
