The Medicine Hat Police Service has released the image of a man they think is responsible for robberies at two city banks within an 18-hour period Thursday and Friday.

On Thursday, the 13th Avenue RBC was robbed at about 6:50 p.m. when a man in a red and black plaid jacket approached tellers, handing them a note which demanded money. After receiving some, he then departed the scene in an older model dark-coloured truck southbound on 13th Avenue SE.

The suspect did the same thing at the 3215 Dunmore Road Bank of Montreal branch on Friday at 11:40 a.m., walking up to the tellers and demanding the money — this time heading out on foot through the Cuyler area.

No weapon was used in either robbery.

The police describe the man as appearing to be in his 50s, overweight and of average height, with a scruffy face and white hair. The police are asking the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect and urge anyone with information to call the police at 403-529-8481 or crime stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS or 1-800-222-8477.
