WINTERSET, Iowa (AP) - An Urbandale man accused of robbing a central Iowa bank at gunpoint has turned himself in to authorities.

The Des Moines Register reports (https://dmreg.co/1CqH12d ) that 35-year-old Hussam Fayiz Abusharkh turned himself in Thursday to the Madison County Sheriff’s Office. He is charged with first-degree robbery. He is being held at the Madison County Jail on $100,000 bond.

Sheriff Jason Barnes says deputies were dispatched March 25 to Farmers and Merchants State Bank in St. Charles on a report of a man with a handgun ordering employees to fill a bag with money.

The case was not yet entered into court records and it wasn’t apparent whether Abusharkh had an attorney to comment on his behalf.

Abusharkh could also face federal charges in the case.
