An Acworth man who police said tried to skip town after robbing a Woodstock Regions Bank location in April was indicted last week by a Cherokee County grand jury.

Nathan Alexander Dotson, 20, was indicted last Tuesday on one count of robbery in the incident from April 30 when he allegedly walked into a Regions Bank branch on Main Street and demanded money from a teller.

According to Dotson’s indictment, he approached a teller at the bank and instructed her to “Give me the money in the vault or you will get hurt.”

The teller agreed, and Dotson got away with an undisclosed amount of cash, according to the Woodstock Police Department.

After the incident, police released photos of the suspect captured on the bank’s surveillance camera and received several tips on his whereabouts.

Dotson was arrested later on the day of the robbery by Woodstock Police officers at a Greyhound bus station in Atlanta where he was about to board a bus and leave the area.

He then confessed to the crime, police said.

Three months later, Dotson remains in custody at the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center on $16,700 bond, Lt. Jay Baker, spokesman for the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, said Tuesday.

If Dotson is released from Cherokee County custody, he will be sent to Cobb County where he has a warrant for his arrest, Baker said.

In Cobb County, Dotson has an active bench warrant stemming from a charge of suspended vehicle registration, according to the Cobb County Sheriff’s Office.
