CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Police are investigating an attempted robbery at a Central Illinois CU branch yesterday afternoon that was foiled by locked doors.

Credit union employees noticed suspicious activity by two people who were outside the branch at around 12:55 p.m., and locked the doors.

One of the two tried to get into the credit union, but could not. The two then rode off on bicycles, which were later found by police.

No one was injured during the attempted robbery.

The credit union was robbed in May, one of a number of robberies at financial institutions within a few days at the time.
