Armed trio robs Denver bank

3 Dec

Three armed men wearing surgical masks and hoodies robbed a Denver bank Wednesday and got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The robbery happened at about 5:30 p.m. at the Bank of the West, 7995 E. Hampden Ave., according to a media release from the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The robbers “took over” the bank, pointing guns at customers and employees and “ordering them to kneel or not move,” the FBI said.

One robber “vaulted the teller counter” to grab cash and the trio fled, dropping money along the way.

The robbers ran toward a nearby apartment building and likely drove off in a get-a-way car, the FBI said.

Authorities do not have a description of the vehicle.
