A pair of masked men with guns raised stormed into a Gallatin Pike bank at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday in what was likely one of the more violent bank robberies in recent months.
The two suspects, whose faces were covered by white plastic masks, ordered employees and customers to the floor at the Fifth Third Bank branch on 2347 Gallatin Pike.
Security cameras showed the men entering the bank with guns drawn.
One of the suspects jumped over the counter and took cash from the tellers’ drawers, police said.
Unfortunately, bank robberies have become all too common to Metro police. Five Davidson County banks were robbed in August.
In most instances, the suspects — occasionally armed — enter, present a demand note, receive cash from the teller and leave the bank.
The suspects in the Gallatin Pike robbery, described only as white men, fled in an older white Volvo sedan.
Anyone who has information concerning the robbery is urged to contact Detective Keith Sutherland with the FBI Violent Crimes Task Force at 232-7500 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
