A 41-year-old Severna Park woman was robbed of $200 at an automated teller machine at the First National Bank in the 500 block of Ritchie Highway Wednesday night by a man who approached her from behind and demanded money, police said.

Witnesses managed to get the getaway car's license tag number, however, and within hours two brothers were arrested at their Annapolis home and charged.

Katie Dowd of Brandywine Avenue had just completed an ATM transaction about 6:20 p.m. when the robber came up from behind her, police said.

He "stood very close behind her and advised her not to turn around and to stay calm," the police report said.

The man then told Ms. Dowd, "You're going to get $200 out." After she complied, the robber grabbed the money and fled.

Two witnesses -- David Stone, 30, and Michelle Stone, 23 -- saw the robber enter a light brown 1991 Nissan and drive north toward Route 648.

The Stones followed the car until they lost it near Route 100 and Interstate 97. But they managed to get the car's license tag number and contacted the police.

Police found that the car was registered to Rigby Dukes of the 6400 block of Miami Ave., Annapolis.

Northern District police and members of the Criminal Investigations Division Robbery Unit staked out the address until the vehicle returned at 11:20 p.m. They arrested Kevin Maurice Dukes, 21, and Reginald Dukes, 19, both of whom live at the

Miami Avenue home and are Rigby Dukes' sons.

Sgt. George Johnson of the robbery squad said officers searched Kevin Dukes and found what is believed to be crack cocaine, a small amount of marijuana and powder cocaine.

Kevin Dukes was charged with armed robbery and possession with intent to distribute a controlled dangerous substance. His bail was set at $200,000.

Reginald Dukes was charged with armed robbery. His bail was (( set at $85,000.
