Two women who dressed up as nuns and attempted to hold up a bank at gun point, are being hunted by the FBI.
Dressed in habits, the pair wandered into the Citizens Bank in Tannersville, Pennsylvania, before pulling a handgun on the teller.
One of them told everyone in the bank to put their hands up, the FBI said, adding that the pair had exchanged some words in Spanish.

One of them then instructed the teller to hand over the money.
But they fled empty handed after an automatic holdup alarm was triggered.
No one was injured during the attempted robbery which took place in broad dayligh.
The FBI in Philadelphia are now searching for the two suspects who they describe as Hispanic, approximately 5’-5’2” tall and of medium build.
