Fort Wayne police are investigating a credit union robbery.

Police say it happened Thursday morning when employees of MidWest America Federal Credit Union, 1021 Swinney Ave., were going into work around 8:40. They say two males wearing masks over their faces forced themselves into the credit union.

The men displayed handguns and demanded cash, according to police.

The suspects stole an undisclosed amount of cash and left the scene shortly thereafter.

Authorities are asking for the community's help in identifying the robbery suspects and are offering a $2,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
