Suspect arrested in Eau Claire bank robbery

Eau Claire (WQOW) - Police have arrested a suspect in Friday's Eau Claire bank robbery.  Benjamin M. Craig, 32, was arrested Saturday night in Duluth, Minnesota.  The Wells Fargo bank on Grand Avenue in downtown Eau Claire was robbed shortly after 10:30 Friday morning.  No one was hurt, and police did not disclose if a weapon was involved.  A press release from the Eau Claire police department did not list Craig's hometown.  According to that release, Craig was taken into custody by Duluth police Saturday night without incident.  There's no word on how much money was taken in the robbery.  The bank was closed for several hours after the robbery, as investigators looked for suspects.  A bank surveillance photo of the robber was released Friday afternoon, but police did not say if that helped them identify Craig.
