ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Two Mankato men face federal charges in a December robbery at a Minnesota State University credit union.

Chop Nguot Tang and Anthony Akiti, both 23, were charged Wednesday with armed bank robbery.

The indictment alleges the two men stole $17,000 from the credit union.

Authorities say a robber — later identified as Tang — approached a teller, showed her a handgun and demanded money. After demanding cash from two more tellers, the robber stuffed the money into a black bag and left.

Police followed footprints in the snow to an apartment complex. Witnesses told police they saw a man run down a hill to a white Cadillac, threw a black bag into the car, then jump in before the car drove away. Police learned that Akiti owned the car.
