A man charged in connection with a Paso Robles bank robbery is back behind bars after being ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Michael Wallravin, 61, was arrested shortly after the Nov. 15 robbery at Pacific Premier Bank.

Wallravin is accused of being one of two men police said entered the bank on 12th street, pulled out guns and demanded money.

He was arrested later that night and posted $60,000 bail a short time later.

During his arraignment Monday in San Luis Obispo County Superior Court, the judge ordered he be held without bail and undergo a psychiatric evaluation, according to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney's Office.

He has not entered a plea and is due back in court later this month.

At least check, Paso Robles police had still not made contact with two other people - William Weldon Chandler, 61, and Billy Benjamin Hernandez, 47 - they identified as persons of interest in the case.
