Detectives are asking the public to help identify two men who simultaneously robbed a Frederickson bank Monday.

The pair went up to tellers just after 3 p.m. at the U.S. Bank branch at 5616 176th St. E. (inside a Safeway grocery store), and each handed over a note demanding cash and threatening that they were armed, according to Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers.

The men, in their early 20s, took the money and left, detectives said.

One robber is described as white, 5 foot 10, and 180 pounds. He was wearing a blue, white and black plaid shirt, and a University of Kentucky baseball hat. There was a large tattoo on his right hand.

The other man is described as black, 5 foot 9, 150 pounds, with black hair in a short afro. He was wearing a long-sleeved gray Nike shirt and camouflage shorts.

Anyone with information is asked to call 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
