LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - In two separate robberies, a man and a woman held up a bank, stormed through the entrance and demanded everyone inside get on the ground. Police say the robbers flashed handguns while doing so. Now the bank is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.

Louisville Metro Police released new surveillance video of one of the crimes that occurred. On Monday, January 23, the Your Community Bank at 13205 Magisterial Drive, near the Gene Snyder and Old Henry Road, was held up. Another crime with similarities occurred September 23, 2011. In the recent holdup, Lt. Jim Mueller said a white woman wearing a mask, hat and hoodie along with a black man in tan pants held up the bank. Police say it's unclear whether the robbers are from here.

No one was physically harmed during the robberies, but a customer walked in during the middle of one holdup. The man jumped the counter pointed a gun at him. Police say this was a very traumatic experience for everyone involved.

Both crimes happened just before 11 a.m. and police say there was no security officer on site.

In the September robbery, a white woman was with a white man. In both cases, the robbers ran away, possibly to a getaway car. With two very similar holdups they're looking for three individuals.

"Anytime you have people inside a facility waving guns around with innocent people there is a likelihood that someone could be injured or killed, whether that is intentional or unintentional," said Mueller.

You're asked to call the LMPD anonymous tip line at 574-LMPD (5673) if you have any information that might lead police to an arrest.
