The Los Banos Police Department is seeking two men in the armed robbery of Rabobank on West Pacheco Boulevard on Wednesday.

No one was hurt in the incident.

A couple outside of Rabobank witnessed the robbery and notified police at 11:44 a.m., said Cmdr. Ray Reyna Jr.

Reyna said the two males were carrying guns and wearing masks. He said the first robber was wearing a lime green jacket and dark pants. The second was dressed in loose-fitting pants with a white stripe and a dark hooded sweatshirt or jacket.

Reyna said the men fled the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash and were last seen driving south on Badger Flat Road in a red or maroon 1990s Dodge Durango. A partial license plate from the vehicle consisted of the numbers 311.

Reyna said Los Banos police are working with the FBI. No other details were available.
