ITHACA, N.Y.—Ithaca police have announced an arrest they made in a bank robbery that took place on Nov. 30, 2020.

Police said Napoleon Peterson was taken into custody on April 25, 2022, in New York City on an arrest warrant for third degree robbery. Peterson was already in the custody of the NYPD.
