Two robbers struck First Federal Savings Bank in southwest Fort Wayne on Wednesday morning – the city’s second bank heist this week.
Police said a man went into the bank shortly after it opened at 9 a.m.
He was wearing a baseball cap and looked distracted by a piece of paper in his hand. Investigators suspect he did this in an attempt to keep security cameras from capturing an image of his face.
He approached the counter, put the hood of his sweatshirt over his head and showed a gun to the two tellers, police said.
An accomplice then entered the bank and demanded money from the tellers. The robbers left with an undetermined amount of cash, police said.
At 9:08 a.m., officers were dispatched to the bank at 5317 S. Bend Drive, near West Jefferson Boulevard. No customers were present for the robbery, and no injuries were reported, police said.
Investigators interviewed bank employees, processed the scene for evidence and sought to obtain surveillance video of the crime.
Police did not receive a description of a getaway vehicle.
Wednesday’s bank robbery has not been linked to the one committed Monday morning, but investigators have not ruled out that possibility.
In Monday’s holdup, two masked men with handguns went into the Chase branch at 6141 N. Clinton St. and left with cash, police said.
In that case, there may have been two getaway vehicles: a small, dark-colored sport utility vehicle and a boxy, dark-colored, mid-1980s vehicle with shiny rims.
