Two men robbed a bank in St. Paul early Monday morning, then set their getaway vehicle on fire before fleeing in another car.

According to the FBI, the two men forced their way into the TCF Bank at 2163 Ford Parkway at about 6:45 a.m., when two employees were preparing to open for the day, WCCO reports.

The men forced the employees to open the vault, where they stole an undisclosed amount of money and locked the employees into a nearby room.

The suspects then fled in a pickup truck, which police found abandoned and burned out near Ford Parkway and Mount Curve Boulevard, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The FBI says witnesses saw the men abandon the pickup truck and drive away in a dark-colored SUV.

Both suspects wore black ski masks and black jackets during the robbery. They were described as about 6 feet tall with medium builds.

A reward is being offered for information leading to their arrest, according to the FBI.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 763-569-8000 or St. Paul police at 651-266-5650.

A couple of months ago, two masked men robbed a bank in Little Canada. They were wearing Halloween masks, and are still at large.
