Two Bartlesville teenage boys are in the Washington County jail on a complaint of attempting to rob a bank.

Bartlesville Police say just before 5 p.m. Friday officers responded an attempted bank robbery at the Bank of the West branch at 4th and Johnstone.

Bank employees say two teens that had been riding bicycles, entered the bank on foot and demanded money from one of the tellers. When the teller said ‘no', employees said the teens said they had a gun and reached into their pockets. When a branch manager told the two teens to leave, both teens ran out of the bank and rode off on their bicycles.

Police say no gun was ever displayed.

One police officer recognized the teens, ages 16 and 17, after seeing them earlier in the day near downtown.

Bartlesville Police tracked them to a home near 5th and Choctaw where they were arrested and a judge ordered them locked up in jail until a court hearing.
