Two men were arrested Monday on charges of robbing an 81-year-old woman outside a Republic Bank in Oldsmar.

Charged with armed robbery and burglary are Edwin Medina, 35, of 2004 E Ellicott St. in Tampa, and Ramon Medina, 39, of 1904 E Lousiana St. in Tampa. The brothers are in the Pinellas County jail. Bail has not been set.

About 5 p.m. Monday, the woman withdrew $200 from an ATM at the bank, 3711 Tampa Road. She pulled forward in her car and was counting her money when the men approached her and demanded her purse. They grabbed her purse and fled in a white 1973 Toyota. The suspects were found in the Fountains II subdivision along Taviner Circle.
