GREENSBORO, N.C. — Greensboro police are investigating two bank robberies that occurred within two-tenths of a mile and half an hour of each other.

An employee of the SunTrust Bank at Lake Jeanette called 911 at approximately 2:35 p.m. Monday to report that the bank had been robbed by a man wearing a gray hoodie.

According to a witness, the man passed a note demanding money. He then fled on foot. Detectives are in the process of determining whether or not any money was taken.

At 3:08 p.m., the alarm company for the Bank of Oak Ridge at 400 Pisgah Church Road notified 911 of a robbery in progress. Greensboro police said witnesses provided a similar description of the suspect who passed a note demanding money and then fled on foot after receiving an undetermined amount of cash.

No injuries were reported at either location. A weapon was not displayed in either incident.

Images captured from cameras at both banks confirm the description and provide additional details about the suspect, Greensboro police said.

Officers and K-9 are searching for the suspect. Detectives are interviewing witnesses and gathering evidence at this time, Greensboro Police Department PIO Susan Danielsen said.

Anyone who can help identify the suspect is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (336) 373-1000 or text the tip to 274637 using the keyword badboyz. All calls to Crime Stoppers are completely anonymous and may result in a reward up to $2,000.
