An armored vehicle was robbed at gunpoint at a bank Friday morning in Prince George’s County.

The armed robbery happened at around 10:30 a.m. outside of the Bank of America on Baltimore Avenue in Beltsville.

Prince George's County police say the Dunbar armored truck with three guards on duty pulled up to the bank. Two of the guards got out of the vehicle and were standing at an ATM with the door open preparing to load cash into the machine when a maroon van pulled up at the bank.

Two masked suspects approached the armored truck and announced a robbery, police say. The driver of the armored vehicle immediately set off an alarm as well as the tellers inside the bank.

The suspects stole more than $200,000 from the guards and then fled in the van, which was then driven down the street onto the grass next to a mortgage office. The suspects left that vehicle behind and got into a getaway car parked in the area.

Police say no shots were fired during the robbery and there was no one injured.
