Citibank in Tarzana robbed; suspects get away
TARZANA, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Police have called off the search for a pair of bank robbers who held up a Citibank in Tarzana on Thursday morning.
Authorities say the Citibank on the corner of Tampa Avenue and Ventura Boulevard was robbed at about 10:15 a.m. The suspects fled the location on foot.
Police spent several hours searching for the suspects, setting up a perimeter in the neighborhood near the bank, but somehow, they managed to slip away.
Investigators say there were two suspects involved. When officers arrived, there was a brief chase, and at one point, they thought they had the suspects cornered in the area of Tampa Avenue and the 101 Freeway.
The Tampa Avenue off-ramp was shut down from the westbound 101 Freeway and began combing several blocks of the neighborhood. The search was called off around 3 p.m.
Police do not have a suspect description available, and there's no word on how much cash they got away with.
