Arlington County police are investigating two attempted bank robberies that took place inside grocery stores, ARLNow.com first reported.

The first incident occurred at around 11:10 a.m Monday at a SunTrust Bank inside the Cherrydale Safeway at 3713 Lee Highway. The suspect passed a note to the teller implying he had a weapon and asking for cash, but fled before he received any.

He was described as a black male between 5′ 9″ and 5′ 10″, in his late 40s or early 50s, with a black and gray beard, and was wearing a red Nationals hat, a navy blue raincoat, jeans and New Balance sneakers.

A suspect with a similar description attempted another robbery about 20 minutes later, at a PNC bank branch inside a Giant supermarket on S. Glebe Road.

Again, the suspect passed a note to the teller and implied that he had a weapon, but fled without the cash.
