ROCHESTER HILLS, Mich. (WXYZ) - Two young men have been arrested, accused of robbing the PNC Bank at Walton and Old Perch in Rochester Hills on Tuesday.
Surveillance video shows a man police say is 20-year-old Jurgen Golemi threatening several employees and customers with what looks like a semi-automatic handgun. His face and head are covered with a shirt.
During the robbery, the suspect gave a teller a bag and told all of the tellers to fill it with money. Once it was filled he ran away.
A passing motorist saw the suspect jump into a car on Nesbit lane, near the bank. The motorist followed the car, which police say was driven by 18-year-old Devid Kamel Sahyoon-Wahba. He was able to give the police the car's license number.
Officers say they were able to track Golemi and Sahyoon-Wahba to the Hampton Inn on Van Dyke in Sterling Heights thanks to tips from witnesses. They were taken into custody Thursday evening, along with two women who were with them.
Police say at the time of the arrest Golemi, Sahyoon-Wahba and one of the women were carrying money from the robbery. Additional money from the robbery was also found in their hotel room. An "Airsoft" gun and some marijuana were also recovered.
Golemi and Sahyoon-Wahba have both been charged with Bank Robbery and Armed Robbery. They are locked up in the Oakland County Jail on $250,000 bond. The women were released.
Police say Sahyoon-Wahba is in the country illegally and will be deported if he is released.
