Police are investigating two separate bank robberies in northern Virginia that occurred Tuesday.

The first robbery was committed at the M&T Bank on the 7000 block of Heritage Drive in Annandale. Police responded to a report of a robbery around 9:30 a.m.

According to witnesses, a man entered the bank and presented a demand note to a female teller and implied he had a weapon. He fled the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, police said. Nobody was injured.

The man was described as a black man in his 20s or 30s, approximately 6 feet tall with an athletic build. He sported a gray sport coat, a black fedora, sunglasses and white sneakers.

Surveillance images of the man are below.

The second robbery occurred in Arlington, Va., where two men entered a PenFed Credit Union bank on the 700 block of South 12th Street at 1:19 p.m. and demanded money from a teller.

The two men placed an undisclosed sum of money in their backpack and fled the scene in a blue and white taxi, according to witnesses.

The first man was black, approximately 6-feet tall, with a skinny build and short beard. He wore blue jeans, a blue jacket, a black and red hat, and glasses. The second man was black, about 5-feet-10 inches tall, and wore blue jeans, a grey hooded sweatshirt and blue jacket.

A surveillance image of the two robbers can be seen below.
