Take-over Bank Robbery

Riverside, Ca-  On May 20, officers from the Riverside Police Department responded to a take-over bank robbery that occurred at the Cal Fed Bank at 3500 Tyler.  Four masked men entered the bank and told everyone to get on the floor. Three of the men jumped over the teller's counter and took money out of the drawers. The suspects then fled in a stolen white Buick that was later recovered in the carport of an apartment complex located at 3535 Banbury. Witnesses at the apartment complex saw the suspects exit the Buick, two of the suspects getting into a red Chevy Blazer and the other two suspects getting into a white Dodge Neon. Both vehicles then left the area.  The suspects displayed no weapons.  It was immediately unknown how much money was taken.
