Corpus Christi Police responded to a complaint of a bank robbery at 5444 Staples Street Thursday afternoon.

Responding Officers learned that two men went to the Members First Federal Credit Union at 1:45pm and took money by force from the bank tellers. One man went into the lobby to approach the tellers while the second man stood at the door. The man who went into the lobby wore red shorts, a gray long sleeve hoodie shirt, gloves and a white mask. The man in the red shorts approached each of the tellers of the bank, displayed a handgun, and demanded money from the till. The second man wore a mask and gloves and stood watch at the door. The tellers gave money in a bag to the man in the red shorts and the two men left the bank and ran south toward Tanglewood Drive where they may have gotten into a maroon pickup truck.
