In the first case, investigators are looking for a man who robbed the Wells Fargo Bank at 1302 Garnet Ave. on May 3.
Police said the suspect walked up and handed the teller a demand note at about 1:30 p.m. The teller gave the man an undisclosed amount of money before he fled on foot northbound on Fanuel Street. The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his mid-60s, about 5 feet 8 inches with a medium build with slicked-back hair and a full beard. The suspect was wearing a dark blue shirt, jeans and was carrying a blue backpack.
In a second bank hit at the same location, a man identified by police as Roosevelt Bracks, 33, walked up on May 4 at about 9:30 a.m. and handed the teller a demand note.
The teller gave Bracks an undisclosed amount of money. As Bracks was fleeing, the teller contacted the security guard and informed him that the male leaving the bank just robbed the bank.
According to police, Bracks crossed the street and handed a female the money. The female fled south on Fanuel Street.
The security guard apparently walked up and detained Bracks until police officers arrived to arrest him. Bracks was positively identified by the bank teller. The second suspect is described as a black woman in her early 30s, about 5 feet 5 inches, with straight hair. She was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a red liner and gray shorts. The police department’s Robbery Unit continues to investigate.
