WINSLOW

Police search for two menwho robbed Bangor Savings

Police on Saturday continued to search for two men who robbed a Bangor Savings branch in Winslow.

Staff at a Waterville emergency services dispatch center said Saturday there were no new developments and no arrests made in the case. Two men with handguns robbed the 78 China Road branch at 11:13 a.m. Friday, brandishing handguns, ordering everyone in the bank down on the floor and fleeing on foot with cash.

No employees or customers were injured in the robbery.

Both men were wearing heavily stained painting coveralls and wearing sunglasses.

One was between 50 and 60 years old, around 250 pounds, with a thick gray handlebar mustache, and the other was between 20 and 30 years old, taller, with a slight accent and a bandana covering the lower part of his face, he said.

Winslow police Sgt. Haley Fleming said interviews with bank employees were inconclusive about what kind of accent the man had.

Winslow police are leading the investigation, while Maine State Police and the Waterville Police Department are assisting with evidence collection. Fleming asked that anyone with information about the robbery call the Winslow Police Department at 872-5215.
