    First Start Community Bank was robbed this week and police are asking for help to identify the robbers.

    Police are searching for the masked men who committed an armed robbery at a New Haven bank on Tuesday afternoon.

    Two men wearing bandanas to conceal their faces went in through the back door of The First Start Community Bank, at 299 Whalley Avenue, around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday and confronted a teller, police said.

    When they realized that the first teller did not have a cash drawer, they went to another teller, pulled out a large silver revolver and were able to get some cash, according to police.

    One witness told police that the men walked north on Sherman Avenue and might have gotten into a red vehicle.

    Police have released photographs from the bank's surveillance system in the hopes that someone will recognize them.

    The man who was armed was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and a red hat.

    His accomplice was dressed in black and wore a boonie style hat.
