Robber strikes banks near AU

Two banks in the Tenleytown area were robbed Feb. 4 by the same female suspect. Police are still searching for the suspect and request any information regarding the robberies.

The suspect is of possible Hispanic or Middle Eastern descent and is described as being between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall. Officials said she has a medium build with curly black hair and is believed to be in her late 20s to early 30s.

The woman allegedly entered a PNC Bank at 4249 Wisconsin Ave. at 9:13 a.m. and approached the teller with a note demanding money. The teller allegedly cooperated and gave the woman an unknown amount of money, according to a Metropolitan Police Department press release.

The woman left the PNC bank but reappeared on cameras at the Bank of America located at 4201 Connecticut Ave. 26 minutes later, according to MPD. The suspect again allegedly presented the teller with a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled the scene, according to MPD.

The female suspect was caught on camera at both banks.

MPD asks that anyone with possible information regarding the robberies call (202)-727-9099.

MPD will give up to a $10,000 reward for providing MPD with information that leads to arrest and conviction of anyone involved in the robbery, according to the press release.
