The suspects are accused of robbing a Bank of America on Saturday.

CASTLE ROCK, Colo. — Authorities are asking for help identifying two people accused of robbing a bank in Castle Rock. 

It happened at the Bank of America located at 1251 New Beale St. just before noon on Saturday, according to the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force and Castle Rock Police Department.

Police say the suspects made threats about having a weapon but the weapon wasn't actually seen.

The first suspect is described as a 30- or 40-year-old woman who was wearing a white baseball cap, prescription glasses, neon green sweater and black leggings with neon green stripes. Police said she was carrying a black purse and using a pink gaiter as a mask.
