Chicago (www.incnow.tv) - Police in Chicago want answers after a Hollywood style prison break occurred sometime Tuesday night.

Investigators say two men launched their escape by breaking the glass-window in their high-rise cell and squeezing through the five-inch space to get outside.

They then repelled down the building with a harness and a rope made out of bed-sheets.

The escapees are 27-year-old Jose Banks and 38-year-old Kenneth Conley.

Both are convicted bank robbers and are considered armed and dangerous.
