35-year-old Illinois man charged in connection with Plainfield bank robbery


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

Kenneth Matlock was charged with one count of felony bank robbery Monday. He was arrested shortly after the robbery Friday.

A criminal complaint says the suspect 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 says a witness called police and provided information that led to Matlock's arrest.

Matlock faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

His attorney declined to comment Monday.
