Police in Maplewood are looking for suspects who robbed a man at a bank ATM Friday.

According to officials, Maplewood Police Department received a 9-1-1 call and responded to the area.

Once the victim made the deposit and walked back to his car, he noticed a silver sedan pull into the bank parking lot and strike the driver's side area of his vehicle.

Police said the driver of the silver sedan exited the car and approached the victim while motioning toward his waistband, implying he had a firearm.

The victim stated that he did not observe a weapon. The driver demanded that the victim give him money, and the victim complied by giving him his wallet.

Police said the victim told them there was a second male, but he stayed inside the vehicle.

The driver entered the silver sedan and drove eastbound on Springfield Avenue towards Irvington.

The victim reported no injuries. 

According to the victims,  he described the suspect who approached him as a thin black male wearing a black jacket, sweatpants, and black ski mask.

The second suspect, who remained in the car, was described as a male of medium build, wearing a green sweatshirt and black ski mask.
