A man, armed with an AK-47, and a woman wearing masks robbed a Gurnee bank Monday morning, the FBI said.

Police were called to the Norstate Bank, 5384 Grand Avenue in Gurnee, at 10:55 a.m. for an armed robbery, in what the FBI described as a takeover robbery.

The FBI said that two suspects, one armed with an AK-47, robbed the bank and fled with an undisclosed amount of money. No injuries were reported.
