FBI and Police offer reward to catch violent bank robbers

AKRON, OH (WOIO) - Akron Police and the FBI are now offering a $10,000 reward to catch three violent bank robbers.

The suspects fired several shots while robbing the Ohio Savings Bank on Brittain Road Tuesday afternoon.

Police say the three men were wearing paintball masks and were armed with hand guns.

They fired one shot when they entered the bank and hollered for everybody to get down on the ground. The suspects then grabbed the cash, fired another shot and fled.

Police believe these are the same suspects that robbed a PNC Bank on Buchholzer Boulevard this past August.
