FAIRFIELD - Police have arrested one man and are searching for two others Monday night after a kidnapping and bank robbery in Fairfield.

Authorities say one of the suspects kidnapped someone and forced him to take money out of his safe deposit box at the TD Bank on Black Rock Turnpike. They say a teller immediately called police, who arrived at the same time the victim was being walked out of the bank.

Police arrested that suspect on the spot, but are still looking for the missing pair. They say the suspects and the victim likely know each other.

Officials say the two missing suspects took off in a blue or teal Mercedes CLS 500.

Meanwhile, the bank will remain closed until the investigation is complete.
