The FBI says a Bismarck man was jailed Thursday on a charge of robbing a Gate City Bank in Minot.

The suspect, Ruben Paul Slater, 33, lived in Grand Forks in 2009.


FBI spokesman Steven Warfield said Slater is suspected of entering the Gate City branch bank, 1017 Broadway in Minot, about 9 a.m. Thursday, handing the teller a note that said: "This is a robbery -- 20s and 50s quick and no one gets hurt."

The teller complied, while another teller hit an alarm.
