PORTLAND, Maine — Police are on the hunt for a pair of robbery suspects who held up a University Credit Union on Forest Avenue on Wednesday afternoon.

Portland police Lt. Gary Rogers said in an email to the Bangor Daily News that two black males went into the bank just before 2 p.m. with their faces concealed under hooded sweatshirts.

The men handed a teller note demanding cash, and the suspects fled with an undisclosed amount of money, Rogers said. The suspects weren’t armed, and nobody was injured, he said.

One customer was in the bank at the time of the robbery, Rogers said.

Rogers said said two other area banks have reported two individuals fitting the same description acting suspiciously at those banks before this robbery.

The two suspects are described as young black men tall with thin builds and speaking a foreign language. Both men were captured on video surveillance.

The case remains under investigation. Anyone with information regarding the case is asked to call the Portland Police Department at 874-8533. printed on April 26, 2017
