Police detectives are investigating a bank robbery reported late Wednesday morning in Los Banos.
Authorities said no one was hurt in the incident.
Cmdr. Ray Reyna Jr. said a couple outside of Rabobank at 1451 W. Pacheco Blvd. witnessed the robbery in progress and notified police at 11:44 a.m.
Reyna said the two male robbers were carrying guns and wearing masks. He said the first robber was wearing a lime green jacket and dark pants and the second robber was dressed in loose-fitting pants with a white stripe and a dark, hooded sweat shirt 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-era Dodge Durango. A partial license plate from the vehicle consisted of the numbers 311.
Reyna said Los Banos police are working with the FBI on the case.
