FBI looks for 2 credit union robbers

Two separate bank robberies in Eau Claire, Wis. and Burnsville, Minn. are being investigated by the FBI after both credit unions reported being robbed by an unidentified white man.

According to the Pioneer Press and the Star Tribune, a man robbed a credit union in Burnsville around 11:30 a.m. Monday. In another incident, a man robbed a credit union in Eau Claire around 2 p.m. later that same day.

The stories report that around 11:30 Monday, a man approached a teller at the U.S. Federal Credit Union and demanded money. He was later seen running away towards an apartment complex. Later that day, around 2 p.m., a man approached a teller at Royal Credit Union in Eau Claire, produced a pistol and demanded money.

The FBI is investigating both incidents and is currently looking for information.

In the Pioneer Press, only the Burnsville robbery was covered. The information in this story was concise and direct but there was not enough information. This could have been due to time constraints or simply availability of information to the reporter.

The Star Tribune included a lot more information about both robberies as well as a surveillance photo from both banks. This story was more interesting, more detailed and much more well written compared to the story in the Pioneer Press.
