DANVILLE, Ind. (WISH) — Police in Hendricks County are investigating two bank robberies that occurred within the past week.

Danville Police say the North Salem State Bank at State Road 39 and West Main Street was robbed just before 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday.

Police describe the suspect as between being 5’6″ and 5’7″ tall and weighing between 110 and 120 pounds. Police said the suspect presented a note asking for cash, and was wearing an orange knit hat with a camouflage hat over it. The suspect was also wearing black sunglasses, a red or orange undershirt with a camouflage shirt on over that and a black hoodie with white draw strings on top. The suspect’s jeans were rolled at the bottom. Police said the suspect dumped their shoes after fleeing the scene.

How much money the suspect got away with has not been disclosed.

Last week, a bank in Plainfield was also robbed.

A Danville Police spokesperson told 24-Hour News 8 they are following up on all leads, the many tips they’ve received, and they’re looking into similarities in different robberies.
