COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Columbia Police have released surveillance images of the two suspects wanted in connection with an armed bank robbery in the Five Points area. 

The armed robbery happened at the TD Bank on the 1900 block of Blossom Street around 11 a.m. Saturday morning. Officers say two black men entered the bank and demanded money from a teller before fleeing the scene in a car. A dye pack hidden inside the stolen money exploded as the suspects were leaving the scene of the crime.

One of the men had a pistol. His face was covered and he was wearing a white shirt. The second man also wore a white shirt, however, instead of covering his face he wore sunglasses and a hat.

Police are processing surveillance video from the scene and hope to release images of the suspects and their car soon. 

Investigators said there is no need for the public to be alarmed at this time. 

The police department is continuing to follow leads in this case and we will continue to bring the latest updates as they become available.
