A couple of bank robbers in the Halloween spirit hit a bank in the Galleria area Monday morning.

They robbed the Prosperity Bank at San Felipe and Bancroft about 11:10am. Police say two men wearing "Scream" masks and white gloves robbed the bank. At least one of the robbers was armed with a pistol. The men demanded money from the bank employees and received an undisclosed amount of cash.

The men then took off in a red minivan. No one was hurt and it's not know how much money was taken.

The two suspects are described as black males, between 5 foot 4 and 5 foot 8, with a medium build and 20-25 years of age.

The FBI tells Eyewitness News this is the 140th bank robbery in Houston/Harris County this year.
