— Two men who authorities said escaped from a federal halfway house have been indicted on charges in a Clayton bank robbery.

Derrick LaMont Massenburg, 24, and Charles David Cain, 41, both of Raleigh, have been indicted on charges of conspiracy to commit bank robbery, armed bank robbery, aiding and abetting, carrying a firearm in a crime of violence and escape. Cain also was indicted on a charge of being a felon in possession of ammunition.

The charges stem from a Dec. 10 hold-up at an RBC Centura branch at 11861 U.S. Highway 70 West, near Shotwell Road, in Clayton.

Authorities said Massenburg and Cain escaped from a federal halfway house in Raleigh, donned disguises and obtained a handgun, which they used in the robbery.

Both robbers were arrested in woods near Clayton after fleeing the scene in a Jeep Cherokee.
