Minneapolis police seek public's help identifying two bank robbers


The Minneapolis Police Department is asking the public to help find two men who robbed the same bank on different days.

The first suspect robbed TCF Bank at 3118 Lake Street East at around 5 p.m. on Oct. 28, according to a statement released on Friday. Police say the man walked in by himself, flashed a black handgun and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Officials describe him as a native male with a light complexion and aged between 28-30 years. He was wearing a gray long sleeved shirt, black hat, baggy black pants and new Jordan Retro 7 shoes.

The second suspect robbed the same TCF Bank at around 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 3. Police say he implied that he had a gun but did not show it. He also fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police describe that suspect as a thin white male in his 40s. They say he was wearing a denim blue jacket, blue jeans, brown boots and sunglasses.

If you have any information on either suspect, police ask you to call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or send an anonymous text tip to 274637 and begin the message with "TIP674." All calls and messages are anonymous.
