"Two black men wearing all black entered the bank with handguns," said a local news report. "Both men approached the teller counter and demanded money. The suspects ran in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of money."

Both suspects were said to be between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 with long hair or wigs. One had braids and beads, a trademark of James.
