Two masked men wearing black hoodies held up a U.S. Bank branch in Redwood City on Tuesday afternoon but made no mention of toting a firearm, Redwood City police said today. The duo entered the bank, located at 1475 Woodside Road, at about 2:20 p.m., approached a teller window and told the teller and a customer at the window that the bank was being robbed and warned them to stay still, police said. One suspect went behind the counter and removed cash from the drawer, according to police. The other suspect remained in the bank’s common area to keep an eye on the customers and other bank employees, police said. Both suspects then made a run for it, and were last seen on foot heading south on Beresford Avenue. No gun was seen nor mentioned during the robbery, according to police. Both suspects are described as black men in their mid-20s, both standing about 6 feet tall. One suspect wore a white bandana to cover his face and the other used a dark-colored cloth to disguise himself.

Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to contact Detective Josh Chilton (650) 780-7141.
