BALTIMORE (AP) — A Baltimore man who pleaded guilty to robbing a Dunalk bank at gunpoint has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison.

Twenty-year-old Darrius Washington was sentenced Friday in federal court in Baltimore.

According to his plea agreement, Washington and 20-year-old Janaya Person-Robinson approached a teller in the parking lot of M&T Bank on Oct. 1, 2013. Prosecutors say pointed a .32 caliber gun at the teller’s head and ordered her to unlock the door of the bank.

Authorities say Washington and Person-Robinson, who had been a teller trainee at the bank, forced another teller to open the vault. Prosecutors say the two grabbed money and left carrying a bag with $133,600.

They were quickly arrested.

Person-Robinson pleaded guilty to armed robbery and will be sentenced on Oct. 22.
