Police: Masked gunmen bound bank robbery victims with zip ties

The Greenwood Police Department is searching for two gunmen in connection with a bank robbery Thursday morning.

Police said the suspects were wearing hooded jackets, black gloves and ski masks while robbing the First Merchants Bank at approximately 9:20 a.m.

Witnesses reported the gunmen bound the hands of their victims with plastic zip ties.  It was also reported there may have been another accomplice outside of the bank because the suspects were seen talking on a two-way radio.

The suspects left with an undisclosed amount of money and were last seen running west on 18 Providence Drive.

A bank employee and customer were treated for swelling to their wrists caused by the zip ties.

If you have any information regarding the robbery, please contact police at 317-881-2518.

    Only Greenwood schools were on lock down, not the schools that are just down the street or behind the kroger that is near there.
