&TC County police arrested two men Tuesday and charged them in the holdup of a Linthicum branch of Signet Bank.

John Wayne Newman, 36, and Robert George Pawley, 30, neither of a fixed address, were charged with robbery in the first of two bank robberies that occurred in a three-hour period in Linthicum Tuesday, police said.

A man walked into the Signet Bank branch in the 700 block of Hammonds Ferry Road shortly after 11 a.m. and demanded money from a teller, police said.

The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount, and the man left, got onto a bicycle and rode off with another bicyclist, police said.

The second robbery, at the NationsBank branch in the 200 block of Benton Ave., was not related to the first, police said.

In that case, a teller gave a robber an undisclosed amount of money about 1 p.m., police said.
