— Authorities arrested two men Wednesday afternoon after a robbery at the RBC Centura Bank at 300 North Arendell Ave.

At about 1:15 p.m., a man wearing all dark clothing and a black bandanna covering his face entered the bank. The suspect implied that he had a handgun and demanded money from the tellers, police said.

The suspect then jumped the counter and took an undetermined amount of cash.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the robbery.

The suspect ran from the bank and fled in a gold, four-door Lexus. A deputy located the vehicle a short time later on U.S. Highway 70 and Rains Road in Princeton.

Zebulon investigators, with the assistance of the Johnston County deputies, later arrested Devonza Faison, 29, of 102 Powell St., Mount Olive, and Charles Faison, 37, 203 Lucky Oak Road, Goldsboro.

Devonza Faison was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon and Charles Faison was charged with aiding and abetting robbery with a dangerous weapon, police said.
