The FBI says five masked bank robbers "took over" a Capital One bank Wednesday afternoon, and now they need help identifying the suspects.

According to the FBI, four men with hoods and masks covering their faces entered the bank at 1102 Eldridge Parkway around 4:30 p.m., and three of the men rushed and robbed the tellers while one stood watch by the door. The FBI says they got into a silver Volkswagen Jetta with no front license plate driven by a fifth man. There were customers with children in the bank at the time, but no one was physically hurt, authorities say.

The suspects are described as tall, thin, black males with athletic builds and possibly in their early to mid-20s. The FBI believes they may be responsible for two other robberies in March and January.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS or the FBI's Houston office at 713-693-5000. There is a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the suspects.
