Fairfield Cops: Banks Located Right Off I-95 Were Robbed 20 Minutes Apart

FAIRFIELD, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Police in Fairfield were investigating a pair of bank robberies that occurred on Thursday afternoon.

At 3:44 p.m. a Bank of America on Kings Highway Cutoff was robbed. Twenty minutes later a man matching the same description but wearing different clothing robbed a Chase Bank on Grasmere Avenue, police said.

The banks are located just minutes apart from each other and are both near exit and entrance ramps for I-95, according authorities.

In both cases the suspect entered the bank, held up a note, and demanded cash.

The man indicated that he was armed but did not brandish a weapon, according to a press release issued by the Fairfield Police Detective Bureau.

After obtaining money the suspect fled on foot and eventually took off in an unknown vehicle, authorities said.
