Two people entered the branch at 1776 S. 70th St. just before noon, according to Capt. Don Scheinost. One had a gun and another had pepper spray, but neither weapon was used and no employees or customers were injured.

The robbers left with cash and fled northbound in a silver vehicle.

Police are not sure of the gender of either suspect. One was 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-6 inches tall, thin, wearing a dark sweatshirt and sweatpants. The other was 5-foot-7 to 5-foot-9 inches tall, thin, wearing a red sweatshirt and dark sweatpants.

The same bank branch was robbed on March 16, but police say Friday’s robbery might be related to an armed robbery of the Great Western Bank, 6424 Havelock Ave., on April 13, in which pepper spray was used.

Scheinost said in April that a man showed a gun, demanded cash and used pepper spray, injuring two Great Western Bank employees. No shots were fired. The employees were treated on the scene.

The man involved was described on the scanner as being 5-foot-7, and wearing a red sweatshirt. A woman with him was reportedly 5-foot-6, wearing a red sweatshirt, black sweatpants and carrying a white plastic bag.

No arrests have been made in either Pinnacle Bank robbery or the robbery at Great Western Bank.
