The Capital One Bank at the Takoma/Langley Crossroads area was robbed Thursday, August 6 just before noon. An undisclosed amount of money was taken. The suspect said he had a weapon, but did not display it. Nobody was injured.
Takoma Park Police said they responded to a report of an armed robbery at 11:52 AM. The suspect handed a note demanding money to a teller, who complied.
Police say the suspect is apparently the same person who robbed Suntrust Bank on Cherry Hill Road, Silver Spring July 30. They released a series of bank surveillance-camera photos showing the suspect in the Capital One Bank robbery, wearing a dark wide-brim hat, sunglasses, and rubber gloves.
The bank is located at 1181 University Blvd, in the strip mall on the south-western corner of University Boulevard and New Hampshire Avenue intersection, between a Starbucks Coffee franchise and Tony’s Villa pizzeria.
The suspect was described as a black male, approximately 40-50 years old, 5’6-5’7 with a beard, last seen wearing a black t-shirt, tan cargo shorts and carrying a duffle bag. He also has a large band-aid on his right elbow.
Police ask anyone with information about these crimes to call the Takoma Park Police Department at 301-891-7128 or 301-270-1100 or the Montgomery County Police Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5101.
