A man arrested in connection with the robbing of a PNC Bank branch in west suburban Naperville Friday afternoon was charged in federal court Saturday.

Kevin A. Johnson, 30, was taken into custody without incident from his place of employment in Naperville shortly after the incident Friday afternoon.

According to the complaint, Johnson entered the PNC Bank branch located at 9 East Ogden in Naperville just after 2:30 p.m. Friday and demanded money from a teller. Johnson also allegedly threatened to shoot the teller if the teller did not comply with his demands and kept his right hand in his coat pocket, which led the teller to believe Johnson had a weapon.

The robbery prompted nearby North Central College to issue a bulletin telling students and faculty members to "be advised of increased police presence in the area north of campus."

It was one of two robberies reported in the Chicago area Friday. A Chase bank branch in an unincorporated area of Glen Ellyn was also robbed.

Although not charged, the complaint against Johnson also states that he carried out a robbery at an American Chartered Bank in Downers Grove on January 17.

Following that robbery, an individual reported to law enforcement that a car later determined to be registered to Johnson was parked in a residential driveway at about the same time as the robbery. The vehicle information and additional investigation led to the identification of Johnson and his arrest Friday.

His next court appearance is scheduled for February 20.
