The suspects entered the bank at 3:43 p.m. and confronted several employees. When they entered, one of the suspects used the handle from a scooter to prop open the front door, according to a Police Department news release. Once inside, they reportedly approached several different employees, grabbed them and demanded that they open the safe.
Before employees were able to comply with the demands, the suspects left on foot and were seen running into a residential neighborhood. They did not obtain any money from the bank.
