LRPD spokesperson Cassandra Davis reports that the Metropolitan Bank branch at 7401 Cantrell Road was robbed today by a male and female couple who displayed a handgun and later pepper sprayed a teller.

Davis said that officers responded to the scene at 2:36 p.m. Witnesses said the suspects are a male who is 6' to 6'4" tall, 180 pounds, with a full beard, wearing all black, and a female who is 5'4" tall, 140 pounds, with long black hair and also wearing all black, including a black cap. The man carried a handgun, while the female was armed with the pepper spray.

Davis said the pair fled in a white Chevrolet Malibu with an undisclosed sum of money. The teller was treated at the scene and released.
