NORTHFIELD, Minn. – A search is on after a midday bank robbery south of the Twin Cities.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension says two men entered the Premier Bank on 5th Street E. in Northfield at around 11:50 am Tuesday. One man approached a teller, displayed a black semi-automatic handgun and demanded money. Northfield police say the two men then left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
The suspects are described as:
- Black male in his 30s, about six feet tall and with a heavy set build. He was wearing a black beanie type hat, black scarf over his face, a teal winter jacket with black sleeves with purple squares on the shoulders, grey sweatpants, whitish/grey gloves, and a yellow traffic-type vest. This suspect displayed the handgun.
- Black male in the late teens or early 20s, about six feet tall with a thin build. He was wearing a black stocking cap that covered his face, a yellow/black jacket with reflective striping, black pants, black gloves, and wearing a solid-colored back pack. Police believe this suspect also had a firearm but a description of the weapon.
