Wichita police on Saturday were searching for a pair of men who reportedly robbed Valley State Bank at gunpoint Saturday morning.

Sgt. Bruce Watts said the men entered the bank, 5310 S. Broadway, about 9:30 a.m., ordered employees to the ground and demanded cash. They got away with an undisclosed amount of money, Watts said. At least one carried a handgun.

The men were last seen fleeing in an older model, gray Ford Focus, Watts said. They are in their 20s or 30s, he said, 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-8 tall, weigh about 160 pounds each and have slender builds.

The bank is located south of 47th Street South on Broadway. No one was hurt in the ordeal, Watts said.
