The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Chief David Rausch of the Knoxville Police Department (KPD) are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the two men who robbed the SunTrust Bank in Knoxville on May 31, 2013.

At approximately 9:30 a.m. on May 31, 2013, two men entered the SunTrust bank at 2075 N. Broadway in Knoxville, Tennessee. Both men brandished handguns and demanded money from the bank employees. Both were black males wearing construction attire, including orange shirts, vests, and hard hats. One of the men had a tattoo on his right forearm, which is visible in one of the security photos below.

The men fled the bank in a green, Ford Ranger truck before obtaining any money from the bank. The Ford Ranger was previously reported stolen earlier today during a robbery at approximately 12:19 a.m. The truck was abandoned by the subjects and has been recovered by law enforcement.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Knoxville FBI at 865-544-0751 or the KPD at 865-215-7212. A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of this individual.

This matter is being investigated jointly by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force (SSTF), composed of the FBI, KPD, and KCSO, and the KPD Major Crimes Unit.

All defendants are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
