A $10,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two men who committed a takeover-style robbery at the American Bank of Commerce last Friday.

Lindon police say the two bank robbers — one dressed in a dark business suit and the other in a light business suit — carried firearms, stun guns and pepper spray.

A male bank employee was injured by being pepper-sprayed directly in the face. The same employee also received several discharges from a "Stun-Gun" type device. Other employees had firearms held to their heads and were exposed to pepper spray, police said.

Police said one robber jumped the counter to reach the tellers and possibly further intimidate them, according to a news release.

"The [men] were extremely aggressive and threatening to bank employees as they sought compliance with their demands," according to a news release.

The robbers are described as possibly in their 30s and either white or light-skinned Latino. In addition to suits, the robbers wore heavy boots, black wigs and fake beards, according to the release.

They were last seen running southwest from the bank, which is located at 144 S. State Street in Lindon. They may have used a dark or maroon sedan or crossover SUV, the release adds.

The amount of money taken has not been disclosed.
