Police search for two men who robbed a Titusville bank.

TITUSVILLE, Fla. -

Police are searching for two men who they say robbed a bank in Titusville on Thursday morning by jumping over the counter and forcing the teller to the ground.

Shortly after 11 a.m., two men entered the BB&T Bank on Country Club Drive and instructed the customers and staff to lie on the floor, according to police.

One of the men jumped over the teller desk and physically forced the teller to the ground, while the other man stood watch.

No weapons were observed or implied in the robbery, police say, and there were no reported injuries.

The suspects are believed to have fled the area in a gray or silver vehicle with an undisclosed amount of money. Police describe both men as white males wearing dark-colored sunglasses and baseball hats with fishing logos on them and both were carrying bags.

The first suspect is reported to have been wearing a white Hawaiian-print shirt with a blue shirt underneath, with either jeans or khaki-colored pants.

The second suspect was said to be wearing a baseball-style undershirt with black or dark-blue long sleeves and a gray middle.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS or Detective Jason Walton at 321-264-7816.
