Agents from the FBI and officers from Prince George's County Police say a man robbed the Capitol One Bank at 6335 Marlboro Pike in District Heights this past Saturday.

The same man is believed to have robbed that same bank on May 16 as well as the Wells Fargo in Arlington, Virginia on Sept. 13, 2013.

Authorities said witnesses have described the person responsible in each of the robberies as a black man in his mid-30s who is about 5'8" tall and around 160 pounds.

In each case, the robber showed a note to a bank teller demanding money, but no one was hurt. He fled with an undetermined amount of cash each time.

Police released surveillance photos (see above) and are offering a reward of up to $5,000 leading to an arrest in these holdups.

Police asked anyone who may have information about these robberies to call the Baltimore Division of the FBI at 410-265-8080.
