SWANSEA, Mass. (WPRI) -- Police are on the hunt for two suspects after a Swansea bank was held up Thursday morning.
We're told two men entered the BankFive branch, located at 497 Milford Road, just before noon and ordered customers to the ground. One of the suspects jumped onto the counter and demanded cash from the tellers.
Both men fled on foot with an undetermined amount of cash to the rear of a nearby business, and police believe they may have left the area in a dark-colored, four-door car. No weapon was mentioned or shown.
At the time of the crime, the suspects were wearing dark-colored hoodies, and one was wearing red sweat pants. Both were wearing latex gloves and had the lower portion of their faces covered.
When the suspect jumped off the counter he landed on one of the customers, who was later transported to the hospital for evaluation.
Anyone with information regarding the identities of the suspects is asked to contact the Swansea Police Department at (508) 674-8464 ext. 137.
