FBI: Men carjack bank employee, rob Anoka bank

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The FBI says two men carjacked a bank employee from her driveway, drove her to the Anoka US Bank branch where she worked, then took money from the vault before running away on foot.

It's believed to be the third time these men have robbed a bank. The FBI says they are getting increasingly more bold, and that carjacking an employee takes their activity to a new level. It's not clear if the suspects followed the employee home from work, or were staking out her house.

The FBI says that at about 6 a.m. Friday, the woman was confronted in her driveway by two men who said they'd shoot her if she didn't cooperate. One of the men drove her car to the bank. Once there, they told her to let them into the vault, and they took cash.
