Two Bank Robberies In Less Than 24 Hours In Manchester
MANCHESTER, NH - Two bank robberies in less than 24 hours in Manchester are under investigation by Manchester Police who are looking for assistance from the public.
Friday, a suspect entered the Bangor Bank at 170 Baker Street at about 2:30 p.m. During the robbery, the suspect walked into the bank with a cell phone up to his ear and slid a note to the teller demanding money. He continued to talk on the phone and once he got the cash he walked out of the bank, and is believed to have left the area on foot.
The suspect in the Bangor Bank robbery is described as a white male with a mask, sunglasses, a white baseball cap, and a blue shirt.
Saturday morning Manchester Police responded to a robbery at TD Bank North at 300 Franklin Street.
Police learned that a male covering his face with a construction vest walked into the bank, told the teller he had a gun and demanded money. He passed the teller bags to fill and then left the bank.
The robber’s face was completely covered. He had a white construction hat on, a yellow vest over his face, a gray baggie outfit, and was riding a bicycle according to Manchester Police Spokesperson Heather Hamel.
Currently, police say it is unknown if the two crimes are connected. Anyone with information about these incidents should call Manchester Police at 603-668-8711 or the Manchester Crimeline at 603-624-4040.
