INWOOD, W.Va. - Two people believed to be teenagers robbed a bank in Inwood on Monday after they indicated they had a gun and demanded a cashier fill a bag with money, police said.

Chief Deputy Kenneth Lemaster of the Berkeley County Sheriff's Department said Monday night that police were still looking for the pair and the car in which they were last seen.

The robbery happened around 2:06 p.m. at City National Bank on Sader Drive.

The two men, both described as white, 17 or 18 years old and about 130 pounds, waited in the lobby until customers left, Lemaster said.

Each wore a sweatshirt. One pulled his hood up and the other was wearing a knit cap, Lemaster said.

After taking the cash, the men fled on foot to the parking lot of a nearby grocery store and got into a Pontiac sports car. They were last seen heading toward U.S. 11, police said.

Deputy Matt Rephann and Sgt. Russell Shackelford are investigating. Officers with the FBI also were called into assist, which is common procedure for bank robberies, Lemaster said.

He declined to say how much cash was taken.
