TULSA – The search continues for robbery suspects that, police say, used takeover tactics at a local bank Thursday.

Tulsa police were called to IBC Bank at 5302 E. Skelly Dr. to investigate a robbery. When they arrived they were told that three people wearing dark clothing and masks over their faces entered the building and forced everyone to get down.

Police say the suspects then demanded money and left.

Because they were wearing masks over their faces, witnesses were unable to give a description of their appearances.

Authorities were told that they got away in a black sedan heading east on Skelly.

Detectives are reviewing surveillance video and are trying to track them down.

No one was hurt but many people were shaken up.
