VOORHEES TWP., New Jersey (WPVI) -- A father and son are facing charges connected to an armed bank robbery in Voorhees Township, New Jersey.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Jermaine Johnson of Haddonfield and his son, 23-year-old Safeek Johnson of Philadelphia, robbed a Fulton Bank in April.

Jermaine was arrested by U.S. Marshals in Camden County on May 18. He was charged with first degree robbery and weapons offenses. He is currently in Camden County Jail awaiting trial.

Safeek was arrested Monday by U.S. Marshals in Philadelphia. Authorities say he was in possession of a handgun at the time of his arrest. Safeek was charged with first degree robbery and weapons offenses. He is currently being detained in Philadelphia pending extradition, prosecutors say.

The robbery occurred just after 11 a.m. on April 26 at the Fulton Bank on Haddonfield-Berlin Road.

A teller told responding officers that a man had entered the bank armed with a handgun and went into the vault area. The man left the bank with a large amount of cash from the vault.
