Armed men rob Del City bank
Two armed men robbed a BancFirst branch Saturday morning in Del City, the FBI reported.
DEL CITY — Two armed men robbed a bank Saturday morning, and authorities think the robbers are responsible for other bank holdups in the area.
HOW TO HELP
Anyone with information about the robbery or robbers asked to call the FBI at 290-7770.
Two men pointing handguns entered BancFirst, 4200 S Sunnylane Road, about 9:30 a.m. and yelled at customers to put their hands up.
One of the men kept his gun pointed at customers and bank employees while the other demanded money from a teller and forced a bank customer to hand over his wallet, the FBI reported.
One of the robbers stuffed money into a white plastic bag, then both of them left the bank. No one was injured during the robbery.
The robbers are described as:
• A thin black man in his early 20s, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches tall, who was wearing all black clothing, black tennis shoes with white soles, a black ski mask, and carrying a dark-colored revolver.
• A black man between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall, wearing a black hooded jacket, a gray shirt, a multicolored knit cap, dark jeans, black tennis shoes and carrying a semi-automatic handgun.
The description of the robbers and the way the bank robbed is similar to two robberies at a nearby Bank of Oklahoma branch on Jan. 24 and Jan. 18, the FBI said.
Stolen cars were used in those robberies as well as the robbery Saturday.
A stolen vehicle believed to have been used by the suspects was found near the Sunnyview Apartment complex at SE 44 east of S Sunnylane Road.
