KNOXVILLE — Authorities have released surveillance photos of two men who today robbed a North Knoxville bank and fled in a truck that had been stolen earlier in the morning.

The pictures show two black men wearing construction vests, orange T-shirts and hard hats as one brandishes a handgun at a teller at the SunTrust Bank, 2075 N. Broadway. One of the men has a large tattoo on his right forearm.

The FBI, which released the pictures, did not include a description of the height and weight of the suspects.

Authorities said the two men, both armed with handguns, entered the bank about 9:30 a.m. and demanded cash from tellers.
