U.S. Magistrate Judge Thomas Shields on Tuesday found that Mohamed Elkamil would present a flight risk if released and a potential danger to the public.

Court records show Elkamil was indicted by a grand jury last year for the July 20, 2009 robbery of American Bank and Trust in Iowa City. The indictment says he took $70,000 in deposits while brandishing a firearm. He has pleaded not guilty. Trial is scheduled for Jan. 3.

Elkamil was arrested in Egypt on a warrant issued by Interpol and deported back to the U.S. FBI agents arrested him Oct. 6 after he arrived at John F. Kennedy International airport in New York.
