— Raleigh police say they have arrested a suspect in the July 8 robbery of the BB&T Bank at 7447 Six Forks Road.

Stephen Brent Himes, 32, of 103 Dowell Drive in Cary, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon.

According to state Department of Correction records, Himes was charged earlier this month with assault on a female.  He was being held in Wake County Jail on that offense when he was charged Saturday in connection with the bank robbery, police said.

Himes remained in jail Saturday on a $210,000 secured bond.

His next court appearance for the bank robbery is Nov. 16. Himes is due in court for the assault charge on Dec. 1.
