    Joseph Amatel, 53, of Cranston, is suspected of robbing the Citizens Bank in Hoxsie on Nov. 27, 2017.

    WARWICK, RI — A Cranston man suspected of robbing a Citizens Bank in Hoxsie on Nov. 27 is being held at the ACI for violating probation set in a 2012 robbery case.

    Joseph Amatel, 53, faces one felony count of first-degree robbery brought by Warwick Police, who allege that he went into the bank at 10 West Shore Road at about 1:15 p.m. and later fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

    The Warwick PD posted the case on the RI Most Wanted website in seeking help to identify the suspect.

    Amatel had been serving a 17-year suspended sentence and 17 years’ probation imposed in June, 2013 on a second-degree robbery charge brought by Providence Police in 2012. At a court appearance on Dec. 4, 2017, Magistrate Richard Raspallo ordered Amatel held at the ACI until a violation hearing scheduled for Jan. 3.

    In a separate arraignment on the bank robbery charge held Dec. 4, Judge Mary McCaffrey set bail at $50,000 and scheduled a felony screening for Jan. 16.
