DAVIE - Authorities released images of an armed bank robbery Sunday, in hopes of catching the robbers who hurt a pregnant woman during the heist.
The robbery happened Friday at the Bank of America branch, 6300 Stirling Road, just before 3 p.m., according to news releases by Davie police and the FBI. Two masked gunmen barged into the bank and yelled for everyone to get down on the floor. One robber jumped the counter and took about $3,000 from the tellers' drawers.
The other robber stood guard in the lobby and carried two handguns. That robber either pistol-whipped or shoved a pregnant customer, slightly injuring her, authorities said.
Paramedics took the woman to Memorial Regional Hospital, where she was treated and released, Davie police spokesman Lt. Bill Coyne said.
Authorities were looking for the men and the vehicle they used to flee.
The FBI describes the robber who shoved the woman as a 6-foot male in his early 20's. He wore a dark top with a white ski cap, dark pants and a dark bandanna over his face. The person who jumped the counter was also in his early 20's, with a thin build. He wore dark pants, a light gray shirt and also had a bandana over his face.
There was no detailed description of the getaway driver. The vehicle was described as a green SUV, possibly a Ford Explorer or Isuzu, in poor condition, with a spare tire on the rear. The vehicle's partial tag is V06.
The FBI South Florida Violent Crime Task Force is working the case jointly with the Davie Police Department.
