Robbery of TCF Bank Branch in St. Paul

On December 15, 2014, two black male robbers approached a TCF Bank branch located at 2163 Ford Parkway in St. Paul, Minnesota, at approximately 6:45 a.m. The robbers approached two employees who were opening the bank and demanded entry into the bank. The robbers then forced the employees to provide them with access to the bank’s vault.

Once inside the vault, the robbers collected an undisclosed amount of cash and locked the employees in a room adjacent to the vault. The robbers fled from the bank and entered a pickup truck which was later recovered by police near the intersection of Ford Parkway & Mt. Curve Boulevard after being burned. The robbers then entered a dark, SUV-type vehicle and drove in an easterly direction on Ford Parkway.

The robbers were described as black males, who both stood approximately 6’0” in height and had medium builds. Both robbers wore black ski masks and black jackets.

Anyone with any information regarding this robbery should contact the FBI at (763) 569-8000 or the St. Paul Police Department at (651) 266-5650. There is a reward for information leading to the identification and/or arrest of these suspects.
