OKLAHOMA CITY—James E. Finch, Special Agent in Charge of the Oklahoma City Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, announced the robbery of the Bank of Oklahoma at 4324 S. E. 44th Street in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

At approximately 9:24 a.m., two black males entered the bank with weapons drawn. The subjects approached the teller counter, yelling, “Put your hands up and give me the money” while pointing a dark colored revolver and a dark colored semi-automatic handgun at the tellers. The tellers complied with the demand and put the money in white plastic shopping bags being held by the subjects. Both subjects departed the bank and were last observed leaving eastbound on S.E. 44th St. in a stolen, white, four-door Honda that was located near the bank. No one was injured in today’s robbery.

Surveillance photos and witness descriptions depict the subjects as follows:

Subject one: black male, early-mid 20s, 6’1” tall, approximately 150-160 lbs., thin build, wearing a dark hooded jacket, a bandana-style covering over the lower part of his face, and light-colored sweat pants and carrying a dark colored revolver.

Subject two: black male, 5’11”-6’0” tall, approximately 200 lbs. with a stocky build, black hooded jacket, a bandana-style covering over the lower part of his face, and darkcolored pants and carrying a dark colored semi-automatic handgun.
