ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A man and a woman were arrested and charged with robbing an Annapolis bank Monday morning, Anne Arundel County Police said.

Officers responded to the PNC Bank at 737 E. College Parkway at about 10:30 a.m. Monday. Police said a woman entered the bank, implied she had a weapon, and passed a teller a note demanding money. The employee complied, and the woman left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The woman was later identified as 44-year-old Rachel Stewart, of the 1600 block of Secretariat Drive. She was found at a residence not far from the bank and placed under arrest. She was charged with robbery, second-degree assault, theft of more than $100 but less than $1,500, and reckless endangerment.

A 22-year-old man who was also at the residence, Blake Heritage Nicholson, was also taken into custody and charged with robbery and obstructing and hindering.

Anyone with additional information about the robbery should call the Anne Arundel County Commercial and Bank Robbery Unit at 410-222-4720 or use the county TipLine at 410-222-4700.
