An armored car made a stop Tuesday morning at Wells Fargo and was robbed by armed suspects.

Just after 7 a.m. Tuesday, two masked men armed with handguns went up to the driver of the Loomis truck as he was getting ready to make a drop at the ATM at Stephenson Avenue and Abercorn Street, according to Savannah-Chatham Metro Police.

The suspects demanded the cash bags in the truck. They got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran toward the La Quinta Hotel.

No shots were fired and no one was injured in the armored car robbery, SCMPD spokeswoman Gena Bilbo told CNN. The armored car guards were attacked as they unloaded money from the truck to put it in an ATM, according to Bilbo.

They were wearing hoodie sweat shirts, jeans and gloves. Police said one of the men is believed to be a black male. They're described as between 5'9"-5'11" tall and having average builds.

"This is the second Loomis robbery that we've had in the last six months," she said. "It was the same time of set up. They were taking the money, unloading it, and were going to put it in an ATM."
