A $10,000 reward is offered to anyone who can point authorities to two suspects in a brazen armed robbery Friday at Arizona State Credit Union.

The suspects entered the facility at 6501 E. Greenway Pkwy. in Phoenix just after 2:30 a.m., and ordered customers at the facility to hit the floor, the FBI said. They were in disguise and carried semi-automatic handguns.
One of the suspects ordered the branch manager to open the vault, where the robbers obtained an unknown amount of cash.
Both men are described as black. One of them was between 20 to 25 years old. He was 5'5" tall and had a thin build. He was wearing a black nylon or ski mask over his face. He was wearing a black, long-sleeved sweater or shirt, black pants and tennis shoes with white soles. He was also wearing blue or light-colored latex gloves, and was carrying a black pillow case.
The other was between 25 to 30 years old. He is described as 6'1" tall and weighs between 200 to 250 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black-hooded sweatshirt with a white logo on the front. he also wore black pants, white tennis shoes and blue or light-colored latex gloves.
A third suspect was a man behind the wheel of the getaway vehicle. The vehicle is described as a 2000 GMC four-door Jimmy. The top is red and the bottom is gray with a tan or beige trim piece that runs the entire length of the vehicle, in the middle of the panel, and separates the body colors.
The FBI said the robbery may be related to another one at the same institution on Sept. 11, 2012.
The Bank Robbery Task Force is comprised of the Phoenix Police Department, Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Mesa Police Department and the FBI.
