Two armed men rob an Oklahoma City bank Tuesday morning, making off with a bag full of cash. Now, investigators believe the two could be responsible for two other robberies that occurred last month.

According to the FBI, the two suspects entered the Bank of Oklahoma located at 2601 N. Meridian in Oklahoma City around 10:41 a.m. Tuesday with guns drawn.

The FBI says one of the suspects remained near the back door while the other one walked up to the counter with a plastic bag and demanded money from two bank tellers. That man reportedly yelled at the bank employees to "don't touch anything" and "give me the money." The teller placed an undisclosed amount of money in the plastic bag.

The suspects left out the back door and got into a Honda vehicle, described as dark in color, possibly purple with a gray primer door. Nobody was injured.

Investigators say the robbery and suspect descriptions are similar to two other bank robberies committed recently. The first occurred on February 13 at the Bank of America, 3501 N. McArthur in Warr Acres.
