The young girls walked into a branch of 1st National Bank in Cincinnati, Ohio and handed a note to the cashier demanding money.
According to police the note implied the girls would harm employees if the money was not given to them. They did not appear to have any weapons.
Staff complied and the girls walked out with a bag full of money. They then evaded an extensive police search which included a helicopter and sniffer dogs.
One of the girls was described as heavy set, around 5 feet 4 inches tall, and was wearing a hooded top and blue jeans.
The other was said to be second thin, around 5 feet tall and wearing a baseball cap.
