CU employees assaulted shots fired reward offered
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (12/3/12)--Authorities are offering a $5,000 reward for information about three gunmen who entered a Fort Wayne, Ind., credit union Thursday morning, roughed up three employees and fired weapons before they fled with cash.

The incident occurred at ProFed CU just after 8 a.m. Thursday. Three men wearing sweatshirts with hoods pulled over their heads ambushed an employee as she arrived for work and forced her inside at gunpoint (The Journal Gazette Nov. 30 and News-Sentinel Nov. 29). Two other employees were inside.

The men battered the three employees and bound their hands and ankles. The men fired their weapons inside the building before fleeing. None of the employees required medical attention.

No members were inside the credit union at the time. However, a member waiting at the drive-through outside witnessed the robbers fleeing at the rear of the building and called 911.

A police dog led offices behind the credit union to a residential area but lost the scent. It was Fort Wayne's 13th robbery of a financial institution this year.

The Indianapolis office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation is offering the reward for information leading to the robbers' arrest.
