Two employees pistol-whipped during robbery
ORLANDO, Fla. (11/17/11)--Two employees of a credit union in Central Florida were treated at a local hospital after being pistol-whipped during a robbery Wednesday morning (The Florida News Journal Nov. 16).

One suspect is in custody and another was still at large, according to police. The incident occurred just before 8 a.m. when employees were opening Sunbelt CU on Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando. Two masked men wearing dark long-sleeved clothing walked in, ransacked the office, and pistol-whipped the employees, then left.

One robbery suspect was arrested later behind the credit union, and police were searching for the second man.  Police did not say whether they took any money (cfnews123.com and myfoxorlando.com Nov. 16).

The credit union's employees, who did not suffer major injuries, were treated at Florida Hospital and released.
