SIOUX FALLS, S.D. -- It was another bank robbery, and another masked man in Sioux Falls on Tuesday morning.

Police and the FBI were still looking late Tuesday afternoon for two men -- one wearing a mask -- who robbed the First National Bank in western Sioux Falls on Tuesday morning about 9:10 a.m.

Sioux Falls police said one suspect was armed with a handgun.

The suspect with the gun is a white man, 6 feet to 6-feet-5 inches tall, and weighing 200 to 230 pounds.  He was wearing a dark colored baseball cap with gold lettering, possibly relating to the US Navy.  He wore a light colored shirt and dark pants.

The second suspect is a black man, 5-feet-8 inches to 5-feet-10 inches tall, and weighing 250 to 300 pounds.  He wore a mask and wig, a light colored shirt and dark pants.  The man lost the wig as he was leaving.

Both men left in a dark colored car, possibly a newer model Audi.  The car traveled east on West 26th Street.

Several employees were in the bank, but no one was injured.

It’s the second bank robbery on the west side of the city in a week. A robbery last week involved two men wearing masks. Those robbers have also not yet been caught, said Sioux Falls police spokesman Sam Clemens. He added that detectives don’t believe the two robberies are connected.

If anyone has information, they are asked to call police at 605-367-7000 or Crime Stoppers at 605-367-7007.
