FBI agents and the Los Angeles Department Robbery Homicide Division are asking for the public's help to identify and find suspects who robbed a Brentwood bank.

Around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, two suspects entered a OneWest Bank in the 12400 block of Wilshire Boulevard. One suspect approached a teller and demanded money at gunpoint. The second suspect jumped over the counter and opened a cash drawer.

The suspects then fled the scene after obtaining an undisclosed amount of cash, authorities said.

The first suspect is described as a man in his 30s, between 5 feet 5 inches tall and 5 feet 7 inches tall, with a medium build and no facial hair. He wore a black long-sleeved shirt, dark-colored pants, a black visor and, according to witnesses, carried a dark-colored handgun.

The second suspect is a man in his 20s, between 5 feet 1 inch tall and 5 feet 3 inches tall. He wore a long-sleeved white shirt with a light-colored tie, dark pants, a black baseball cap and black glasses. Witnesses said the man had a soft voice.

Anyone with information was asked to call the FBI 24-hour line at (310) 477-6565, contact the LAPD at (877) LAPD-24-7, or call 911.
