FBI makes 2 arrests in Wells Fargo bank robbery

The FBI has made two arrests in connection with a bank robbery in Northwest Washington.   
The Wells Fargo branch at 4302 Connecticut Avenue was robbed early Friday afternoon by a suspect wearing a black mask, holding a gun, and delivering threats, according to police. 

Witnesses told FOX 5 that the armed suspect told the teller he could kill a customer if he didn't get the money.

DC Police named the suspects as a 66-year-old Thomas Anthony George of Southeast, Washington, DC and 37 year-old Dewitt Hall of Southeast, Washington, DC.

After grabbing the money, police say the suspect walked out of the bank to a black SUV in a parking garage with a driver inside.

Secret Service personnel who were in the area at the time assisted D.C. police with trying to catch the suspects.

The FBI is not saying whether the two suspects who were arrested may be part of the so-called "Black Hat Bandits," who have been connected to at least eight bank robberies in our area this year.

No one was hurt. We are awaiting details on whether there could be additional arrests.
