Canton Township police have arrested a 26-year-old man in the armed robbery of the Citizens Bank Jan. 14.
Damon Ross Davis, Jr. of Canton was arraigned in 35th District Court following the police investigation of the attempted robbery which included assistance from the Michigan State Police and the Western-Wayne Community Response Team, a multi-jurisdictional task force that provides resources to participating agencies working large cases.
Davis is charged with one count of bank robbery and one count of robbery, armed which are both punishable by life in prison or a term of years.
Chief Judge Michael J. Gerou set Davis’ bond at $1 million or 10 percent and scheduled his preliminary court examination on the charges for Feb. 19.
The bank, located on the corner of Ford and Haggerty roads in Canton, provided surveillance camera video to police to aid in the investigation. The robber can be seen on the tape entering the bank and presenting a note to a teller demanding cash and a vehicle. The teller refused to comply, and the suspect exited the bank, removing his mask and heading south on foot, according to police reports.
No weapons were visible, police said, and no injuries were reported in the incident.
