Authorities are looking for two men who reportedly robbed two banks Monday afternoon in Norman.

According to the FBI, at about 12:30 p.m., a man walked into the MidFirst bank, located at 3501 W. Robinson in Norman. He approached the teller counter and gave the teller a demand note.

The teller complied with the demand and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of money from the teller drawer, according to the FBI. The suspect then left the bank with the money and met another man who was waiting outside in the parking lot.

Both suspects left the bank on foot.

At about 1 p.m., a man, believed to be involved in the first robbery, entered the Prosperity bank at 3501 W. Robinson and approached the teller counter. The suspect showed the teller a demand note. The teller complied with the demand and gave him an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect placed the money into a small black nylon duffle bag and left the bank with the money. Authorities say he met another man who was waiting outside.

Both suspects left together on foot and no vehicle was seen. They are believed to be the same individuals suspected of robbing the MidFirst Bank about 30 minutes earlier.

A weapon was implied in both robberies but none was seen. No one was injured in the robberies.

FBI agents released the following descriptions of the suspects,

Suspect 1: White male, late 40s to early 50s, 6'0", 180 lbs., trimmed salt and pepper goatee, wearing a beige jacket (possibly Carhartt brand), dark shirt, dark sunglasses, tan hat, and a small black duffel bag.

Suspect 2: White male, brown hair, 5'9", 150 lbs, slender build, wearing a blue plaid shirt, blue jeans, and jacket with a Texas A&M logo.
