Wethersfield police are searching for two suspects accused of robbing a local bank at gunpoint Thursday morning.
Police said employees at the People’s United Bank at 486 Silas Deane Highway reported an armed robbery just after 10 a.m. Employees told police that two suspects, a man and a woman, came into the bank with handguns and ordered everyone to sit on the floor. The male suspect reportedly threatened to hurt employees as he forced two of them to gather cash. The suspects fled north on the Silas Deane Highway in a mid-sized burgundy/red colored vehicle.
No one was hurt.
The male suspect was described as 6-foot with a thin build and brown hair, wearing a hooded sweatshirt or jacket with sunglasses. The female suspect was described as 5-foot-3 and was wearing mid-back length dark-colored wig, sunglasses, and a long tan jacket.
