— Two men were arrested in connection with the robbery of a State Employees Credit Union in Raleigh on Tuesday.

Jullian Cortez Herring, 25, and Fabian Leigh Evans, 22, were each charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery. Evans was also charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Both men remained in the Wake County jail Tuesday, each under a $500,000 bond, and are scheduled for their first court appearance Wednesday afternoon.

The robbery happened shortly before 2 p.m. at the branch on 560 Centennial Parkway, near WRAL-TV's Western Boulevard studios.

During the robbery, a female teller was struck in the head by a hammer, police said. She was transported to WakeMed with non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspects were apprehended after Raleigh police initiated a traffic stop on Western Boulevard. The vehicle matched a description given to police, authorities said.

Video taken by a WRAL photojournalist showed authorities searching a vehicle that was stopped on Western Boulevard a short distance from the credit union. Investigators were seen on the video removing ski masks, gloves and a bag with red markings from the vehicle.

    I am so glad that they caught these two. They were very bold to rob the bank that practically sits on the news campus, where police and photographers are always milling around.

    I sure am glad there are really dumb bank robbers and smarter and swifter police officers. Seems these two wanted some Federal " Spa time " … Maybe their new day job will be making license plates.
