Police arrested a man accused of robbing the same Harrisburg bar in which he had been drinking. Sheriff Tim Mueller of Linn County said the man had been drinking at MacEnzi's Bar and Grill on Saturday. He left around 10 p.m., but came back about 25 minutes later with a beanie pulled over his face.

He allegedly grabbed a bank bag, pushed the bartender and fled.

The bartender recognized the man, who was arrested less than two hours later. The 54-year-old was booked into the Linn County Jail on a charge of third-degree robbery.
