The FBI is investigating a robbery that took place Monday at Woodlands National Bank on East Franklin Avenue, the agency announced Wednesday.

At about 3:30 p.m. two black men entered the bank, ordered everybody to the ground and jumped the teller counter. They took an undisclosed amount of cash from the teller drawers and pushed people to the ground.

The pair then left the bank, ran to their vehicle and drove away to the west.

One of the robbers is described as a black man, about 27 years old, 5-feet-8-inches tall and 160 pounds. He was wearing a brown parka with fur trim on the hood; a long, dark oversized T-shirt; black pants and black shoes.

The second robber is described as a black man, about 30 years old, 6 feet tall and 250 pounds. He was wearing a silver or gray and red Adidas hooded jacket with three silver or gray stripes on the arms and hood, black pants and gray shoes.

The FBI is offering an unspecified reward for the identification, capture and prosecution of the men. Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 763-569-8000, Minneapolis police at 612-673-3829 or the Crime Stoppers tip line at 800-222-8477.

The men are considered armed and dangerous violent offenders.

This robbery is yet another reason why the liberal sinkhole known as Minnesota needs "Stand your ground" laws! Because of liberals, the criminals have free reign in this state! You would never have a Charles Bronson or a Clint Eastwood tolerate this lawlessness!
