U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger announced a federal grand jury has indicted two men for the armed robbery of a bank in Union City.
According to Sellinger, Juan Jimenez, 23, of Union City, and Nicholas Seda-Corales, 24, of West New York, were previously each charged with one count of bank robbery and one count of using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence.
According to documents filed in the case and statements made in court, Jimenez and Seda-Corales entered the bank on April 8 dressed in dark clothing and wearing face masks. Jimenez drew a handgun, aimed it into the teller area and jumped over the teller counter.
Seda-Corales then made his way toward the rear of the bank to prevent bystanders from exiting through a back door. Video footage depicts Jimenez searching several drawers in the teller area before jumping back over the counter and fleeing the bank with Seda-Corales.
Law enforcement officers later executed a search warrant at Jimenez's apartment and recovered three handguns and clothing consistent with that worn by Jimenez and Seda-Corales during the robbery.
Both individuals are in custody. They will be arraigned at a later date.
