A 26-year-old Alexandria man arrested in July for robbing EagleBank in Old Town previously spent more than two years in jail for robbing another Alexandria bank.
On July 7, Dagmawee Dawit allegedly walked into EagleBank at 277 S. Washington Street in Old Town just after it opened at 8:30 a.m., implied he had a weapon and demanded cash from a teller.
The teller put money in a clear trash bag, along with a dye pack, which Dawit allegedly dropped in an alleyway after it exploded. He was arrested minutes later.
Dawit, who is being held without bond in the Alexandria jail, was arrested with an accomplice in 2017 for robbing the Wells Fargo Bank at 3624 King Street in the Bradlee Shopping Center. He pleaded guilty to bank robbery and grand larceny and spent two years in jail.
