CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

A couple of bank tellers and several customers were terrorized Monday morning when three men, all armed with guns, burst into the Buckeye State Credit Union on Chagrin Blvd., Shaker Hts. and tried to rob it.  

According to police, one of the suspects jumped the teller counter and held a bank employee at gun point demanding money. The employee tried to get money from the machine; but the machine would not cooperate. 

A second suspect pulled another employee out of their office to the teller counter and at gunpoint forced the employee to try to obtain money from the same machine. That attempt was unsuccessful as well. 

The third suspect stayed on the customer side of the teller counter to watch over the other customers.

The three suspects eventually fled the bank without any money. No one was injured.

The three unknown suspects are described as black men, dressed in hooded sweatshirts pulled tightly over their faces. The men are described as being 5'9", thin build and possibly in their late teens or early 20's. 

Tips can be provided to the Shaker Heights Police Department, the Cleveland Division of the FBI or Crimestoppers. Reward money is available.

A second robbery on Monday happened in Willoughby at the Cardinal Community Credit Union at 34465 Euclid Avenue.

No word yet on those suspects.
