Police spokeswoman Kammie Michael said a man entered the BB&T Bank at 5028 N. Roxboro St. just before 2:30 p.m. Monday, handed the teller a note asking for money and intimated that he had a weapon.
A similar scene unfolded Friday at about 5:30 p.m. at a SunTrust bank about three miles away, at 3421 N. Roxboro St.

In the images released Friday, he is wearing a black, leather bomber jacket and light pants. Surveillance images from BB&T show a similar man wearing blue pants and a black, hooded sweatshirt.
