Two male suspects are at large after donning reflective-type vests and surgical masks during an armed robbery Thursday outside a bank in Salinas, police said. The manager of a Salinas restaurant had approached the Wells Fargo Bank at 1037 Main St. at about 9:30 a.m. Thursday in order to place the previous night’s receipts in a deposit box, police said. While at the box on the side of the bank, which was closed, the manager noticed two men wearing reflective vests standing near South Main Street whom he thought were maintenance workers, police said.

The men began walking toward him and slipped surgical masks onto their faces, police said. When they came up to him, one man was armed with a silver revolver, according to police. Both men demanded the deposit bag from the manager, who surrendered the bag. The suspects then fled through the parking lot of an automobile repair shop next to the bank, police said. The manager saw them get into a maroon-colored Nissan car and speed away east on Katherine Avenue towards Pajaro Street while removing their vests and masks, police said.

One of the suspects was described was a Hispanic male and the other may have been a white male adult, police said. Both men had medium builds, were between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall and were wearing jeans and tan baseball caps, police said.
