A man armed with a gun robbed a Tulsa bank Tuesday, and police arrested two suspects following a traffic stop near the bank.
The robbery at the Arvest Bank near 36th Street and Yale Avenue happened about 9:30 a.m., Officer Leland Ashley said.
A man wearing a nylon mask entered the bank, pulled out a gun and demanded cash from a teller, he said. The teller gave him an unknown amount of cash, and he fled.
Patrol officers responded quickly and stopped a vehicle with two male occupants in the 4100 block of East 31st Street, Ashley said.
Chantz Terrance Patterson, 34, and Calvin “Coog” Shobe, 28, were arrested at 31st Street and Pittsburg Place, which is east of Yale, about 9:50 a.m., according to their arrest reports.
They are both jailed on complaints of conspiracy to commit robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.
Each is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail.
