A 35-year-old man has been charged in connection with a Plainfield bank robbery.

Kenneth M. Matlock, whose last known address was in Woodridge, was charged with one count of felony bank robbery Monday. He was arrested shortly after the BMO Harris branch robbery Friday.

A criminal complaint said Matlock told the bank teller he would like to withdraw money, and then gave the teller a note demanding money and indicating he had a gun. The complaint said a witness called police and provided information that led to Matlock's arrest.

Matlock faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted. His next court appearance was set for Aug. 21, according to a news release from the FBI.

Matlock's attorney declined to comment Monday.
