Two men armed with semiautomatic pistols robbed a suburban Philadelphia bank on Saturday, according to federal authorities and state police.

FBI officials say the two jumped out of the bushes and accosted the first employee who arrived at the First Savings Bank in Milford Square, Bucks County, shortly before 8 a.m. Saturday. She was forced inside and onto the floor, as were two other employees who arrived later.

The three employees were forced to open the vault and were handcuffed inside, while the robbers took "a significant amount" of cash and then fled after about a half-hour.

Police say the two black males wore dark hooded sweatshirts, ski masks and gloves, and talked on small walkie-talkie radios with another person, possibly female. The pair are considered armed and dangerous and authorities are seeking help from the public to catch them.
