Philadelphia police are asking for help finding the armed suspects who forced a man to go to his bank so they could rob him.

The victim was approached on Friday morning in the 5100 block of North 11th Street.

One man was armed with a gun and demanded cash.

When the victim said he didn't have any, they forced him to get into his car and drive to his bank on City Avenue.

At the bank, a surveillance camera captured one of the suspects.

Meanwhile, the victim was able to tell a bank teller that he was being robbed.

Both suspects then took off.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS (8477), send a text message to PPDTIP (773847), or through phillypolice.com.
