EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) — A Michigan man faces sentencing this summer after pleading guilty to charges related to his role in robbing a southwestern Illinois bank worker restocking an automated teller machine.

Twenty-two-year-old Ramsey Fakhouri of Troy near Detroit entered the guilty plea Friday in East St. Louis to a bank robbery count.

Fakhouri and an 18-year-old man from Concord, Mich., were indicted last month in connection with the February 14th holdup of a Bradford National Bank worker outside that branch in Highland, east of St. Louis.

The bank worker was unharmed, and authorities say the robbery involved the theft of nearly $26,000.

Fakhouri's co-defendant awaits trial.

Fakhouri's sentencing is scheduled for July 11th.
