Four suspects stole $6,000 from the Cooperative Center Federal Credit Union at 2001 Ashby Ave. in Berkeley shortly before noon Tuesday, but they were later arrested in Oakland, according to Berkeley police spokeswoman Sgt. Mary Kusmiss. 

Kusmiss said two of the suspects were armed with shotguns when the group entered the bank at 11:58 a.m. Tuesday and a bank employee was struck in the head. 

But she said another bank employee managed to write down the license plate number of the suspects’ vehicle and they were tracked down by Oakland police at 6657 66th Ave. in East Oakland and taken into custody.
