Police have released photos of the two suspects who allegedly demanded money from Elk Grove bank employees Wednesday afternoon, but fled before getting anything.
Around 3:45 p.m. Wednesday, the two suspects entered the Wells Fargo at 5120 Laguna Blvd., propped open the door with the handle of a scooter, and grabbed employees to demand cash, police say.
"Before the employees were able to comply with the demands, both suspects fled on foot and were last seen running into a residential neighborhood," the Elk Grove Police Department said in a press release. "The suspects were not able to obtain any money from the bank."
Here's how police describe the suspects:
The first suspect was described as an African-American male, late teens to early twenties, six feet tall (6’0”), with a thin build. He was wearing a black jacket over a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark gray jeans, black gloves and dark colored athletic shoes. He wore a white cloth that covered the lower portion of his face and was carrying a red bag.
