Daylight bank robbers forced customers at a bank in Shirlington into a vault, then fled with an undisclosed amount of money in a getaway car, police said.
The robbery occurred just after noon Wednesday at the BB&T Bank branch on S. Quincy Street. Two men wore ski masks and one of them appeared in surveillance video to be holding a gun.
“At least one of the robbers was armed and jumped the teller counter to obtain money from teller drawers,” police said. “After obtaining the money, both subjects exited the bank with an undisclosed amount of money.”
Police said the men fled in a dark or black SUV with DC tags.
“Subject one is described as a tall male wearing a dark colored jacket, black ski mask that covered his head, grey or light colored gloves, grey pants and a black backpack,” police said. “Subject two is described as wearing a dark colored jacket with a grey hooded sweatshirt underneath that was pulled over his head and a ski mask covering his face and light colored gloves.”
