The Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a bank robbery in Superior Township this morning.

According to a release issued by police this afternoon, two suspects are wanted in the armed robbery of the Chase Bank on Huron River Drive at 10:30 a.m.

Police said the suspects, both armed with hand guns, arrived on the scene in a stolen vehicle, entered the bank and forced employees to the ground.

“Both subjects were masked and were wearing gloves,” the report said.

The vehicle, which was left at the scene with the engine running, was reported stolen out of Pittsfield Township.

Both suspects are described as black males in their early 20s, standing nearly 6 feet tall and with a thin build. Police said one suspect was wearing a grey hooded sweat-shirt with “Washtenaw” written on it in green lettering.

The suspects were last seen running out of the front door, west bound out of the parking lot.

The stolen vehicle is a white Chrysler four-door Cirrus LX.

Police said they are currently enhancing and reviewing video surveillance from the bank. Screen shots from the footage accompany this article.
