Two banks in Norman were robbed Monday afternoon within a half-hour span, authorities said.

A robber entered MidFirst bank, 630 W Main, about 12:25 p.m. and approached a teller with a note demanding money. The teller handed over an undisclosed amount of cash, and the robber went outside where he met a second man who was waiting in the parking lot, according to a news release from the FBI.

About 1 p.m., the robber went into Prosperity Bank, 3501 W Robinson, and gave a teller there a note demanding money. When the teller complied, the robber put the cash in a small black nylon duffel bag. He then left the bank and again met up with a second man who was waiting in the parking lot.

Witnesses said a weapon was implied in both robberies, but none was seen. The two men left the banks on foot. the FBI said.

Surveillance photos show one robber is a white male in his late 40s to early 50s, about 6-feet tall and 180 pounds. He had a trimmed “salt and pepper” goatee and wore a beige jacket, dark shirt, dark sunglasses, tan hat and carried a small black duffel bag.

The other man was described as white, with brown hair, 5-feet-9 inches tall and 150 pounds. He has a slender build and wore a blue plaid shirt, blue jeans and a jacket with a Texas A&M logo.

Anyone with information about the robbers should call the FBI at its 24-hour hotline: 290-7770. Callers may remain anonymous.

The Oklahoma Bankers Association is offering up to a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest or conviction of the robbers.
