Police believe a bank robbery Monday could be linked to at least two others in Colorado Springs.

Detectives are basing this on the description of the suspects and the similarities between the three robberies.

In each one, the suspects left the scene in a stolen car, which they later ditched a short distance away. A weapon was also never seen in any of the robberies.

Police said the suspects walked into the TCF Bank near North Academy and Montebello around 10:35 a.m. and ordered everyone to get on the floor. One of the suspects then jumped over the counter and demanded cash. Police say the suspects got rough with the employees, reportedly using physical force to encourage compliance with their demands.

After getting money, the suspects took off in a stolen blue sedan.

The first suspect is described as a black man, 5-foot-4 with a small to medium build. The second suspect is also a black man. He is between 5-foot-10 and 6 feet tall. Both suspects had their faces covered.

The suspects ditched the stolen vehicle by an apartment complex.

Nearby Grant Elementary School was put on lockdown while police searched for the suspects.
