Police are searching for two men who robbed a Myers Park bank early Friday, including one robber who had apparently had a gun hidden in a messenger bag.
No shots were fired and no one was injured in the 10:15 a.m. robbery at the N.C. Bank & Trust, at 1057 Providence Road.
Police said both of the suspects were black males. The first was wearing a blue hooded jacket, green mask and khaki pants. The second was wearing khaki pants and a grey sweat shirt with a blue hooded jacket underneath. He was also wearing a green ball cap and black mask.
Police have not said how much money the suspects got away with. They fled in a vehicle parked nearby that police located unoccupied a short time after the robbery.
Police encourage anyone with information on the crime to call Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or the FBI at 704-672-6100.
