A Wichita man in custody out of state was charged Wednesday in a federal indictment with robbing an Intrust Bank branch in 2013, U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said.

Fredrick Aaron Cunningham, 45, is accused in the indictment of stealing $468 from the branch inside the Dillons at 3211 S. Seneca on Oct. 28, 2013. He is charged with one count of bank robbery.

Authorities at the time of the robbery said a man walked into the store mid-afternoon, approached the bank counter and handed a teller a note that said: “Give me all the money and do not hit the alarm.” When the teller complied, the man left and drove away in a silver Ford Explorer.

Cunningham is being held in Wisconsin on unrelated charges, Grissom said.

If convicted of the bank robbery, Cunningham faces up to 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 maximum fine.
