Police are searching for a man who robbed two banks between June 6 and 11 in East Germantown and Hunting Park.

In Monday’s robbery, a man walked into a Citizens Bank branch on Germantown Avenue near Airdrie Street around 4 p.m. and slipped a teller a threatening demand note, police said.

He fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash. After reviewing surveillance footage, police determined that the same man is wanted for robbing a Citizens Bank branch on Stenton Avenue near East Washington Lane on June 6.
