IOWA CITY (KWWL) - Police arrested a Cedar Rapids man and an Iowa City man after a bank robbery Monday in Iowa City, and say at least one of the men is also responsible for two other bank robberies last month.

Antionne Eugene Davis, 30, of Cedar Rapids and Jamarcus Martelle Knox, 23, of Iowa City, have both been charged with second-degree robbery, a felony.

Davis is accused of holding up the Hills Bank and Trust on Monday and the University of Iowa Community Credit Union on July 17, and Knox is accused of driving the get-away vehicle, according to the Johnson County Sheriff's Office.

Both the bank and the credit union are located on Muscatine Avenue in Iowa City.

Davis also is charged with robbing a Hills Bank and Trust branch in Hills on Aug. 1, according to the Iowa City Press-Citizen.

The vehicle Davis was in was stopped near the Iowa City Kmart a short time after Monday's robbery of the Hills Bank.

Investigators say Davis admitted he was involved in both robberies.
