Two men have been on the run for 16 months and police say they are behind a frightening bank robbery in the Town of Tonawanda.

They haven’t been seen, but that doesn’t mean authorities aren’t looking for them.

“These guys are very dangerous and they don't care who they hurt to get what they want,” said Eric Sakovics, a special agent with the FBI.

Like a scene from a movie, two men were covered head to toe and entered the Evans Bank on Niagara Falls Boulevard in early January 2016, both brandishing weapons and demanding cash.

The FBI says Mohsin Zamir and Waqar Ghumman demanded employees get to the ground. The men made off with a substantial amount of money, but the chase for them was just getting started.

“With police in pursuit they continued to drive at a fast rate unfortunately two police cars got into an accident and at that time,” said Sakovics.

They haven't been seen since and the Buffalo office of the FBI hasn't given up looking for them.

The FBI says Zamir and Ghumman are known to have a gambling problem and could be seen visiting casinos, but the FBI says they could be anywhere from Boston, Massachusetts to Brooklyn, New York to New Jersey or Pennsylvania.

“We know there are individuals out there who communicate with Ghumman and Zamir and we're looking for them to come forward to help us find their location,” said Sakovics. “They're very dangerous because they used weapons. These guys have tried to acquire firearms in the past they aren't so concerned for everyone else’s safety.”

There’s a big reward up for grabs for any information leading to the arrest of Ghumman and Zamir. The FBI is offering $15,000 each. That's $30,000 for the capture of these two men.
