FBI seek 2 masked suspects accused of robbing Albuquerque bank at gunpoint


ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — Federal authorities are seeking two masked men who allegedly robbed an Albuquerque bank at gunpoint.

The FBI says two suspects entered a BBVA Compass bank in northeast Albuquerque on Tuesday around 9:10 a.m. wearing black masks and gloves.

Authorities say no customers were in the bank at the time.

They say one suspect displayed a handgun while demanding money from a teller while the other ordered employees in an office get down on the ground.

The two men left with an undisclosed amount of money.

They are described as between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10 with a medium build. One was seen wearing green-blue sweat pants and a dark gray or black overcoat. The second suspect was seen in jeans and a gray overcoat.

Both Albuquerque police and the FBI are investigating.
