Peraza is in custody awaiting a detention hearing.

Prosecutors say he faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.

According to the criminal complaint, Peraza allegedly robbed a bank in Roswell on March 13.

Witnesses say Peraza demanded money from a teller and walked out of the bank and across a street before sitting in a grassy area where police arrested him a short time later.

It is unclear if Peraza has a lawyer yet.
