Two convicted bank robbers arrested for Uptown holdup

Two St. Paul suspects were arrested Tuesday for an Uptown bank robbery that left behind injured bystanders and stolen cars.

The two men await federal charges in connection with the holdup that took place about 9 a.m. Monday morning at the TCF Bank on Lake Street in Minneapolis, the Star Tribune reported.

Gregory Scott Tyler, 49, had been in a Minneapolis halfway house, and Orlando Vasquez, 40, who came from a Las Vegas halfway house, are both wanted on federal arrest warrants for escape, the Pioneer Press reported.

The robbers tried to speed away in a stolen Acura but they crashed it into a BMW so they hijacked a parked car to flee the scene, the Star Tribune reported.
