    Diamond Fortez and Boysie Fortez

    Police say a husband and wife are facing charges in connection with a Pawtucket, Rhode Island, bank robbery. 

    Police say a woman later identified as 29-year-old Diamond Fortez, of Providence, entered a bank on Wednesday morning and demanded money. She told tellers that she had a gun, but none was shown or found. 

    Police stopped a vehicle a short time later and took Fortez into custody along with her husband, 50-year-old Boysie Fortez. 

    They are both charged with first-degree robbery, conspiracy and child neglect. Maj. Tina Goncalves says the child neglect charges are because they had two children in their car. 

    It could not be determined if they have lawyers.
