KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A Kansas City man who robbed a bank with a hatchet has been sentenced to nearly 16 years in federal prison.

Thirty-five-year-old Derek T. Brownlee was sentenced Tuesday to 15 years and eight months for robbing the Metcalf Bank in Overland Park last July.

Prosecutors say Brownlee was wearing a bandanna over his face and carrying a hatchet when he jumped over the teller's counter and demanded money.

He escaped with money and the teller's personal belongings but was captured after a chase that ended in Kansas City.
