OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) - Two Missouri men with long criminal histories are charged with robbing a northeast Kansas bank where authorities say one employee was dragged by the hair and others suffered minor head injuries.

A federal criminal complaint filed Friday charges 53-year-old Clifton Cloyd and 54-year-old Steven A. Watts, both of Kansas City, Missouri, with one count each of bank robbery and using a firearm in a robbery. Both are in custody and do not have lawyers.

The holdup occurred Wednesday at a Bank of America branch in Overland Park, Kansas. Both suspects were quickly apprehended.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://bit.ly/1nX3wu5 ) both men were paroled from Missouri prisons in 2012. Watts’ record includes a previous conviction for second-degree murder, and Cloyd has served numerous sentences on drug, assault and firearm charges.
