BALTIMORE (AP) — A Gaithersburg man has pleaded guilty to robbing a Frederick bank.

Thirty-two-year-old Ashref Bannaga entered the plea on Friday. He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison at sentencing April 5.

According to his plea agreement, Bannaga entered the Capitol One Bank on Dec. 7, 2011, displayed what appeared to be a gun and demanded that the branch manage open the safe. The manager was unable to, and prosecutors say Bannaga opened a teller drawer, removed nearly $6,000 and fled.

He was arrested shortly after the robbery. Prosecutors say Bannaga was on supervised release after serving nearly six years for bank robbery in 2006.
