The FBI and Sylvania Township police are looking for a gang of five armed men who robbed the KeyBank branch Wednesday at 5756 West Central Ave.

The gang, armed with long guns, entered the bank at 10:50 a.m. and demanded money from tellers. They fired several shots but injured no one, and escaped in a dark minivan that turned out to be stolen.

All of the gunmen wore masks and gloves. They were 5 feet, 6 inches to 5 feet, 8 inches tall, of medium build, and wearing hooded jackets, blue jeans, or sweat pants.

Authorities would not release additional details.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 419-243-6122, Sylvania Township police at 419-882-2055, or Crime Stopper at 419-255-1111.
