The FBI is hunting for two women dressed as nuns who stormed into a bank brandishing a gun in an attempted armed robbery.

Images have been released of the suspects trying to rob the Citizens Bank in Pennsylvania on Monday.

Both women were wearing black and white nuns’ habits and veils and one wore sunglasses to cover her face.

They were caught on CCTV cameras entering the bank just after midday and demanding money from staff.

Wanted: The suspects

One of them was waving around what appeared to be a handgun whilst the other, wearing the glasses, stood by the window.

Officers believe a member of staff hit the panic alarm, which automatically alerts the police.

But before cars could arrive at the scene the two women had fled, empty handed.

Officers described them Hispanic women around 5 foot tall with medium build.

Officers wrote: “#Wanted for attempted armed bank robbery today in #Tannersville PA: 2 H/F, ~5′-5’2″; wore nuns’ habits/veils, had blk handgun.”
