Authorities in Pennsylvania arrested a man Tuesday who has been wanted since 2007 for allegedly committing a violent bank robbery in Kansas City.

Marlon Jaye Larry, 38, purportedly stole almost $40,000 from the Bank of America in the 10700 block of State Line Road on June 27, 2007. A statement from the FBI reported that federal agents and local police arrested Larry without incident in Reading, Pa., about 11:35 a.m.

Larry allegedly struck a bank manager in the head and menaced two employees with a handgun, according to federal court records.

As he was leaving, Larry purportedly apologized to the bank manager for hitting him, but followed that with, “Don’t call the police for five minutes or I’ll come back tomorrow and kill you all.”

Kansas City police identified Larry as a suspect the next morning and recovered about half the stolen money after speaking with his girlfriend, court records showed. After police left, Larry purportedly called his girlfriend to say he still loved her, but “she would never see or hear from Larry again,” according to federal court records.
