LA Bank Robbers Kidnap Branch Manager, Use Fake Bomb in Heist

Two masked gunmen managed to evade authorities after a bizarre bank heist, strapping what they said was a bomb to her midsection and forcing her to order employees to "take out all the money" from her branch.

The bank robbers got away with an undisclosed amount of cash from the Bank of America when it opened Wednesday morning, but no one was injured in the robbery. No arrests had been announced by late Wednesday night.
