FBI agents are looking for the suspects responsible for two separate Oklahoma City bank robberies Monday afternoon.

According to the FBI, at about 4:45 p.m., a man walked into the MidFirst Bank, located at 7403 S. Pennsylvania, and approached the teller counter. The suspect gave the teller a note demanding money and stated he had a gun. Although no weapon was seen, the suspect kept his hand in his pocket during the robbery.

The teller placed an undisclosed amount of money in a plastic shopping bag. The suspect then ran away from the scene with the money. He is believed to have left the bank as a passenger in a gold colored vehicle driven by an unknown accomplice.

The FBI released the following description of the suspect:

According to the FBI, a man approached the teller counter at the Arvest Bank branch inside a Wal-Mart, located at 7800 N.W. Expressway, and gave the teller a note.

The note demanded money and stated the suspect had a gun.

The teller complied and provided the suspect with an undisclosed amount of money. The man was last seen departing the Wal-Mart on foot. No weapon was seen and no one was hurt in the robbery.
