Anyone Know Anything About A Robbery At Investors Bank On Court Street?

IMG_4771
On Wednesday evening, I received a note from reader Jessica that there were quite a few police cars in front of the Investors Bank at 431 Court Street between 3rd and 4th Place and that the bank had been blocked off with caution tape. She was wondering if there had been a robbery.
Yesterday, I received the following email from reader Sasha:
"I was wondering if you'd heard anything about what I THINK was a robbery at the Investor's Bank on Court Street yesterday. I saw police putting up crime scene tape outside and overheard some men from the neighborhood talking about how someone wasn't hurt (I didn't catch her name) and that he (or they) apparently came in five minutes before closing. I tried Googling, but it hasn't brought up any news."

Does anyone know what happened on Wednesday evening? Investors Bank opened at this location in November 2013.

***UPDATE***
Yesterday, reader Ed confirmed on PMFA's Facebook page that the incident reported above definitely involved a robbery.  He wrote:
"It was Wednesday around 6pm. One man in a ski mask. There were only 3 or 4 bank employees there; no security guard. Emilia's salon next door has a camera on the outside, and the police are looking at the images, but he didn't take off the mask right away so they don't have any facial image."

It was a robbery, indeed. I happened to swing by Carroll Gardens Wines & Liquor, next door, while the crime scene tape was still up. Detectives were asking questions to local business owners about their experience, disturbances, etc. Other than that, there doesn't seem to be much intel floating around about what, if anything, the robber(s) made off with.
