— A Raleigh man who faces two charges of armed robbery threatened his victims with an ink pen and keys, according to arrest warrants.

Wayne Eric Daniel told two women that he would stick the pen and keys in their throats, then stole their purses, credit cards and cash, the warrants state. The robberies happened in August.

Daniel, 33, of 3039 Lake Boone Trail, was arrested Friday and placed in the Wake County jail under a $400,000 bond.

He was released from prison in May after serving 13 months for two counts of common-law robbery, according to state Department of Correction records. He is also serving three years' probation for an additional three counts of common-law robbery.
