FREMONT -- Police on Tuesday continued to hunt for two armed suspect accused of holding up a city bank over the weekend.
Officers were dispatched at 10:26 a.m. Friday to the East West Bank branch in the 34400 block of Fremont Boulevard for a report of a robbery alarm, police spokeswoman Geneva Bosques said.
Witnesses told police that two males, one armed with a black, semi-automatic handgun, entered the bank and demanded money from the employees.
During the armed robbery one of the suspects vaulted a counter and took money, Bosques said.
Before police arrived the suspects, who wore hooded sweatshirts, fled north with an undisclosed amount of money, Bosques said.
Police said the armed suspect was described as black or Hispanic, 5-foot-2 to 5-foot-6 inches tall, with a skinny build, a wide nose and a thin mustache. He wore a hoodie with white lettering across the chest -- similar to Abercrombie & Fitch or Aeropostale -- dark pants and black tennis shoes with a white accent and white soles.
The second suspect, who vaulted the counter and took money, wore a maroon hooded sweatshirt with black sleeves, dark pants, black shoes and a black balaclava-style mask.
