Employees of a Fort Wayne bank foiled a potential armed robbery Wednesday by locking the would-be perpetrators out of the building, police said.

Fort Wayne Police responded at 10:43 a.m. to Freedom Financial Federal Credit Union, 1802 Inwood Drive, where employees said they had spotted two men – one armed with a long gun – near the bank, police spokeswoman Officer Raquel Foster said in a statement.

The workers immediately activated security measures and locked the lobby doors, denying the men access to the building, Foster said. The men reportedly fled east on foot, into a nearby residential area and possibly to a waiting vehicle, the statement said.

No customers were inside the credit union at the time of the incident, Foster said. No injuries were reported.

Anyone with information about the incident can contact police or call Crime Stoppers at 436-STOP (436-7867). The incident is under investigation by the Northeast Indiana Bank Robbery Task Force, which includes local, state and federal police.
