CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - On Friday, May 27, 2016, Cleveland FBI say that two men robbed the US Bank located at 14701 Puritas Ave., in Cleveland.

The first suspect was said to be armed with a pistol and wearing a black hoodie, while the second suspect was wearing a white hoodie.

Both demanded money from the teller, who complied.

After the men took the money they fled the bank.

Investigators discovered that a vehicle bearing a strong resemblance to prior bank robbery was seen near E. 105th and Union.

After what was described as a brief pursuit, two of the three occupants were arrested.

Charges are pending against the two arrested.  They have been identified as a woman named Imari Eberhardt and a man named Monta Harris.

The third person is believed to be a black male known as "D, D-Low, Rio".

Both suspects are being held at the Justice Center.

More information as well as federal charges are expected next week.

The trio are believed to be involved with several bank robberies from the past couple of months.

Photos will be posted as soon as they become available in hopes of aiding in the capture of the third suspect.

The investigation is ongoing.
