Authorities are searching for two men who robbed separate banks in Philadelphia on Monday afternoon.

According to the FBI, the first crime occurred around 12:40 p.m. when a man entered the Citizens Bank branch located at 7327 Frankford Ave.

Authorities said the man handed the teller a demand note, receiving an undisclosed amount of cash before running south on Frankford Avenue.

That suspect is described as a white male standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build, beard and mustache.

He also has a heavily-bandaged left hand, surveillance footage shows, and was wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, black jacket and gray 76ers cap.

In the second robbery, the other suspect entered the PNC Branch located at 1111 Market St. around 2 p.m.

Authorities said he handed the teller a demand note, obtained an undisclosed amount of cash and fled on foot westbound on Market Street.

The man is described as a black male in his 50s, standing about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a thin build and a "salt-and-pepper" goatee.

He was wearing a gray zip-up hoodie, black pants, a gray flat cap and white sneakers.

Both suspects are considered armed and dangerous, and a reward is being offered for information leading to their capture.

Anyone with information on either suspect is asked to call the FBI at 215-418-4000 or the Philadelphia Police Department.
