The FBI, Los Angeles County Sheriff's detectives and Torrance police officers are looking for information on the identity of a group of bank robbers dubbed "Two Guys & A Girl Bandits."

The "Two Guys & A Girl Bandits" are suspected of robbing two banks in December of last year in Torrance and Rancho Palos Verdes.

The nickname for the group of suspects comes from witness accounts during one of the robberies that suggests two of the suspects are male and one is female.

The first robbery happened on Dec. 12, at the Wells Fargo Bank, 28350 S. Western Ave., in Rancho Palos Verdes. During the robbery, three suspects entered the bank, ordered everyone down on the ground and demanded cash. The group fled the scene in a stolen white sedan.
