Two Men Rob Albuquerque Bank

Two men robbed the BBVA Compass Bank located at 9500 Sage Road SW in Albuquerque on Wednesday, September 17, 2014.

Both suspects are described as black males and each displayed what appeared to be a semi-automatic handgun.

The first suspect was in his 20s, approximately 5’9” to 5’11” tall, 150 to 155 pounds, with a slender build, light freckles on his face, thin eyebrows, and a faded possibly green tattoo about the size of a quarter on his left cheek.

He wore a gray hooded sweatshirt, black pants, and a dark bandana that covered part of his face.

The second suspect was also in his 20s, approximately 5’9” tall, about 165 pounds, with a slender build.

He wore a dark green hooded sweatshirt, sagging light gray sweat pants with black basketball shorts underneath, black Nike sneakers with a white Nike logo, and a black bandana that covered part of his face.

Witnesses say the suspects entered the bank at approximately 9:08 a.m.

The first suspect approached a teller and displayed a handgun while demanding money.

The teller put an undisclosed amount of money into a plastic bag the suspect held open.

The second suspect stood near the exit and ordered an employee in an office to look away.

The suspects left the bank and walked west on Sage Road and turned north on West Sky Road, where they were last seen.

The FBI and Albuquerque Police Department are investigating.

Anyone with information on this robbery is asked to call the FBI (24 hours) at 505-889-1300.

The FBI may pay a reward of up to $1,000 for the arrests and convictions of the suspects.
