Dec. 03--WOONSOCKET, R.I. -- Impatient with how long one bank was taking to hand over the cash, a bank robber went around the corner and hit up a different bank.
The same suspect is being sought for two incidents within 11 minutes Friday.
At 12:44 p.m. Friday, the Citizens Bank branch at 67 Cumberland St. reported an attempted robbery.
At 12:55 p.m., the Bank of America branch at 25 John Cummings Way reported it was robbed of an undetermined amount of cash.
The banks are on the same block of Clinton Street. Surveillance photos show the same man in different hoodies.
"The first attempt took too long," Woonsocket Det. Sgt. Matthew Ryan said. "I think he got nervous."
No weapon was shown or threatened, Ryan said.
Anyone who recognizes the man or has information about the incidents is asked to call the Woonsocket Police Department at (401) 766-1212.
