Suspected Raleigh bank robbers make first court appearance

Posted May 27, 2015

One of the two suspects accused of robbing a Raleigh bank and assaulting a teller on Tuesday apologized in court on Wednesday before being interrupted by a judge, who advised him not to speak without an attorney present.

Fabian Leigh Evans, 22, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Evans, along with Jullian Cortez Herring, 25, are accused of robbing the State Employees Credit Union at 560 Centennial Parkway. Herring is also charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery.

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

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

Evans and Herring remained in the Wake County jail Wednesday, each under a $500,000 bond.
