2 men charged in Jessup bank robbery

Two men from Prince George's County have been charged by Howard County police with robbing a Jessup bank Friday.

David Wayne Holloway of Landover and David Dwayne Ford of Forestville are charged with armed robbery, handgun violations, robbery, first-degree assault, endangerment and theft, police say. They are accused of robbing a Bank of America branch in the 7300 block of Assateague Ave. shortly before 10 a.m. No customers or employees were hurt, police said.

After the robbers left the bank, a nearby witness noticed two men in masks switching cars and told an off-duty Howard County police officer, who pursued them, police said. The men drove off, abandoned the car and were captured after a foot pursuit, police said. Holloway, 43, is being held without bond. Ford, 26, is held on $1.5 million bond.
