(CARLISLE) - The Indiana State Police and the FBI continues to work on a robbery investigation out of Carlisle.

At 8:35 a.m. today, Indiana State Police say there was a bank robbery at the First Financial Bank in Carlisle.

Deputies say two black men wearing hooded sweat-shirts waited for the employees to open the bank and then forced them inside, using a small hand-gun.

Police say a female teller became flustered when the suspects held the gun to her head causing her to trip and fall, hitting her head. The men then tied-up the bank tellers using zip-ties.

As the suspects left the bank, police say they stole a 2011 grey, Chevy Malibu that belonged to one of the bank employees.
