Detroit police have released images of two people wanted in connection with an armed robbery at a bank on the city’s west side last week.

Two suspects who robbed the bank located in the 19100 block of W. Eight Mile at about 12:10 p.m. Aug. 17.

A surveillance camera captured the pair leaving a silver Chrysler PT Cruiser and entering the bank in the 19100 block of W. Eight Mile at about 12:10 p.m. Aug. 17, investigators said.

“After exiting the vehicle, suspect one entered the location, while suspect two stood in the nearby lobby,” police said in a statement.

The first suspect approached the counter and passed a note to a clerk written on the back of an envelope saying “he was armed with a gun and for the employee to put all the money inside the envelope,” according to the release.
