HOUSTON – Two masked men wielding semiautomatic weapons robbed a Houston bank Tuesday.

The incident happened around 10:20 a.m. at the Comerica Bank on Fountain View Drive near Burgoyne Road.

An FBI spokesperson said it was an aggressive, takeover style robbery.

Authorities say one of the men jumped over the counter and took an unspecified amount of cash from a teller drawer.

The men left a stolen Dodge pickup truck in a nearby parking garage. FBI officials say they believe the men's getaway vehicle was blocked by another when they tried to leave. Authorities say they do not know how the men escaped.

Pictures of the robbers have not been released at this time. Investigators say the men were wearing hoodies over their masks and were heavily covered up.

There were no injuries during the robbery.
