BASALT, Colo. (CBS4) – Police are looking for two suspected armed robbers after they jumped from the emergency window of a Roaring Fork Transportation Authority bus.

Cousins Nicholas Ameral and Benjamin Weeks, both 19, were apparently riding on the RFTA bus Tuesday morning. People on the bus recognized them as wanted men in connection with a convenience store robbery in Carbondale on Feb. 16 and called police.
