Lawton bank robbers at large

Lawton_A little before closing time Wednesday, two masked robbers came into the bank on the 4100 block of West Gore and stole cash from the bank, overtaking a security guard.  Lawton Police say one of the suspects took the security guard's weapon and held up one of the tellers and the security guard at the same time. 

The second suspect jumped over the counter, told the teller to open the door to the office and collected cash from the safe.  Meanwhile, the first suspect ordered the security guard to the ground.  Both suspects then fled east from the bank and were seen heading north down a creek.

Lawton Police need help in tracking down the suspected robbers.  Suspect number one is described as a man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt or jacket, white gloves, a dark colored mask and white tennis shoes.  Suspect number two was wearing a light gray hooded sweatshirt or jacket, white gloves, a dark colored mask, dark blue jeans and black tennis shoes.

One of the suspects is approximately 5'9" and 220 pounds.  The other is approximately 5'7" and 150 pounds.  If you have any information regarding this robbery or any felony crime, please call Crimestoppers at 580-355-INFO.  As always, you never have to give your name.  If your information leads to an arrest and charges being filed, you will receive a $600 reward from Crimestoppers.  City National Bank is offering $10,000 for the tip that leads to the arrest of the suspects.
