Windsor Police Seek Two Armed Bank Robbery Suspects

Police are offering a reward for information that leads to the arrest of two suspects in an armed bank robbery in Windsor Saturday morning.

Windsor police responded to a 911 call reporting a robbery at First Niagara bank at 2133 Poquonock Ave. at about 9:18 a.m.

Two people brandishing handguns demanded money at gunpoint from bank employees and fled the scene in a get-away car with an unknown amount of cash. They had peeked in a window in the back of the bank to scope it out before going in, police said.

No one was injured.

Windsor and state police searched for the suspects but were unable to find them.

Police released surveillance photos of the suspects. They described the first suspect as slim, about 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds and said he was wearing a dark leather jacket, black jeans and grey hooded sweatshirt. The second suspect was about 6 feet tall with a medium build and likely weighs about 160 to 180 pounds, police said. He was wearing a dark, hooded sweatshirt and light pants. Both men had handguns and wore black masks, police said.

The car they fled in was likely a small gray or bronze Mercedes sedan with tinted windows, according to police.  

Windsor police inspected footprints in the snow in that area. 

Police are calling the robbers "amateurs," not "professionals," and said that they remain at large.

No arrests have been made at this time.

Windsor detectives are investigating the robbery and ask anyone with information on the robbery or the suspects in the surveillance photos to call Windsor police at 860-688-5273, extension 521.
