A Rochester man has been arrested and charged with a bank robbery from earlier this week.

According to a criminal complaint, Thomas A. Visconte, 58, of Rochester,  robbed the Chase Bank on Portland Avenue on Tuesday.

The court papers say Visconte entered the bank and handed the teller a note that read, “This is a robbery, give me all of the $100s, $50s, $20s, and $10s, I have a gun.”  Police say Visconte left with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Visconte appeared in court Friday afternoon. He is due back in court on May 27.
