MANCHESTER — Police are investigating two bank robberies within 24 hours at the Bangor Savings Bank and TD Bank North in Manchester, and are seeking public assistance in the case.
The first robbery occurred on Friday at the Bangor Bank located at 170 Baker St.
The suspect, a man with a mask, sunglasses, a white baseball cap, and a blue shirt, walked into the bank around 2:30 p.m., talking on his cell phone.
He passed a note to the teller demanding money, collected the cash and left the bank on foot.
Not even a day later, another robbery was reported on Saturday morning at TD Bank North at 300 Franklin St.
The suspect, whose face was entirely covered by a construction vest, walked into the bank and told the teller he had a gun. He passed bags to the teller to fill with money and left the bank.
The suspect was seen wearing a white construction hat, a yellow vest over his face, a gray baggie outfit, and was last seen riding a bicycle, according to Manchester Police Spokeswoman Heather Hamel.
At this time, it is still unclear whether the two incidents are linked.
Anyone with information related to the robberies is urged to contact Manchester Police at 603-668-8711.
