The Philadelphia Division of the FBI, the New Hope Police Department, and the Bucks County Detective Bureau are seeking the public's assistance to identify and locate the two subjects who are responsible for the armed robbery of the Wachovia Bank branch located at 336 West Bridge Street, New Hope, PA earlier Tuesday.

At approximately 1:10 PM, two armed men, possibly white or Hispanic and wearing ski masks, entered the bank and demanded cash. One of the subjects was wearing a black ski mask, a dark winter jacket, black gloves, and was carrying a dark-colored automatic weapon, possibly an Uzi, and a dark-colored small tool bag with two horizontal white stripes and lettering on the side, possibly the word "Husky." The other subject was wearing a camouflage-colored ski mask, a light-colored winter jacket, black gloves, and was carrying a rifle.

During the robbery several shots were fired by the men inside the bank, however no one was injured.

The robbers fled the bank in a late-model white four door sedan, possibly a Ford Taurus, with unknown Pennsylvania registration.

Several photographs taken from the bank's security camera system are attached to this email.

The subjects are considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000, the New Hope Police Department, or the Bucks County Detective Bureau. Tipsters can remain anonymous.
