BARTLESVILLE, Okla. - Two boys were arrested in Bartlesville Friday as primary suspects in an attempted bank robbery.
Bartlesville police say two teenage boys rode up to a Bank of the West on bicycles around 5 p.m. Friday. The boys entered the bank and "demanded a large amount of money."
The bank manager refused, according to police. The boys said they had a gun, but no weapon was ever produced. Authorities say the boys then left after the manager told them to leave.
In review of surveillance footage, an officer recognized the boys from a traffic accident earlier in the day, police say.
The boys, 16 and 17, were arrested around 5:30 p.m. and ordered to the Washington County Detention Center.
