Cleaning person hurt in attempted robbery at CU
FORT WAYNE, Ind. (3/8/12)--A cleaning person contracted by Partners First FCU, Fort Wayne, Ind. was injured Wednesday morning after being attacked by two people trying to rob the credit union.

Fort Wayne Police were called at 7:16 a.m. to the $240 million asset credit union, where an employee of a cleaning company claimed to have been attacked and forced inside the credit union at gunpoint.

No cash was stolen, though the investigation continues, Fort Wayne police said in a press release.

The suspects allegedly hit the cleaning worker repeatedly during the robbery attempt and fled in the worker's vehicle, the release said. Officers later recovered the vehicle.

The worker was in fair condition at the scene, police said.

Police had not released surveillance video or descriptions of the suspects as of Wednesday morning.

The incident remains under investigation by the Northeast Indiana Bank Robbery Task Force, which includes members of Fort Wayne Police, the Allen County Sheriff's Department, Indiana State Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
