OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City police are searching for three men accused of holding up the Bank of the West Thursday morning on NW 23 Street.

The men were wearing pantyhose and hoodies over their heads when they pulled out guns and took money from the bank around 9:30 a.m. No one was injured.

Police said the suspects exited the bank on foot and likely headed east. Two were armed with semi-automatic pistols.

The three black males along with a white male driving may have fled in a green Ford Thunderbird from the area near businesses located east of the bank.

They are described as young black males, 5'7" to 5'9", 170 to 180 pounds, wearing blue jeans and panty hose style masks. One was wearing a dark blue shiny jacket with a full zipper and a grey hooded sweatshirt with pin stripes underneath. The other two wore dark blue hooded sweatshirts.
