CLEVELAND, Ohio — Banks in Cleveland and Lyndhurst were robbed Wednesday, the second and third reported bank robberies in two days, according to the Cleveland Division of the FBI.

At noon, a man entered the Huntington Bank branch at 4260 Ridge Road in Cleveland. The suspect waited in line, then went to the teller and asked to make a withdrawal. The worker turned to get a withdrawal slip, then turned around to find the suspect pointing a gun and making threats, the FBI says. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount of money.

Witnesses say the suspect is 5-foot-8 to 6-foot and about 150 pounds. He was wearing a dark hooded sweat shirt with lettering on the front and back, dark sweat pants, a dark-colored beanie, and a white hospital-style mask.

At 1:30 p.m., a man robbed a Chase Bank branch at 5332 Mayfield Road in Lyndhurst, the FBI says. The suspect gave the teller a threatening note demanding money, then left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, fleeing on foot south on Winchester Road.

The suspect is estimated to be 6-foot-1, 230 pounds, and was wearing a beige Lacoste hooded sweat shirt, olive green/brown face mask, black pants and a black book bag.

On Tuesday, a suspect robbed a Chase Bank in Bedford Heights. The FBI did not indicate any of the robberies are related.
