Two men are being held in jail Thursday night charged with bank robbery in Wednesday's holdup at a south suburban bank.

Surveillance photos released Thursday show the men armed with guns inside the Bank of America branch in Homewood.

Thirty-two-year-old Malcolm Carpenter of Chicago and 23-year-old Justin Williams of Calumet Park were arrested following a four our standoff at an apartment complex near the bank.

In court Thursday morning prosecutors described how the men allegedly ordered the bank manager to fill a bag with money.

No one was hurt in the holdup.
