Officer Joe Rios, a spokesman for the department, said the man walked into the Wachovia Bank on Loop 410 near Broadway about 11:50 a.m. Saturday and gave a teller a note demanding money.
When they saw what appeared to be dye-pack ink on his shirt, they took off and later called police, Rios said.
Police arrived at the location, apprehended the man and recovered the stolen money.
The man's name was being withheld until he is officially charged.
Authorities said business robberies are up 13.5 percent in San Antonio, while the FBI's regional office has seen a 60 percent spike in bank robberies between 2007 and 2008.
