West Hartford Police said Wednesday that a $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of the two suspects who entered the Santander Bank at 1040 Boulevard at 9 a.m. Saturday and robbed it at gunpoint, escaping with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Images of the two men, both brandishing weapons, were captured by surveillance cameras. Both were nicely dressed and wearing fedoras and what appear to be blue surgical gloves.

One suspect is a black man with facial hair, wearing a tan fedora and dressed in a green and white checked shirt and gray pants.

The other suspect is a clean-shaven black male who was wearing a yellow-ish tan fedora with a black band, a light blue button down shirt and pants that appear in the photo to be khaki or yellow.

The armed robbery was reported to police immediately, but the men escaped before officers arrived and witnesses reported seeing them running northwest behind the bank toward Fairview Street.

There were no injuries reported.
