UPDATE: Police say in both reported robberies, a man entered the bank, approached a teller, and produced a note demanding cash. When the tellers did not immediately comply with the demand, the suspect fled on foot. The robber is described as a black male, approximately 5-foot-4 to 5-foot-7, between 30 and 35 years old with a thin build. He was wearing a tan colored jacket and a white baseball cap. Anyone with information about the attempted robberies is asked to call anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-220-TIPS. All calls will remain confidential.
Police are currently on the scene at two Medford banks after 911 calls reporting robberies at the banks were reported just a minute apart, police said.
A call came in at 1:17 p.m. reporting a robbery at the Bank of America, located at 2851 Horseblock Road, police said. At 1:18 p.m., a call reported a robbery at the Chase Bank located at 2271 Route 112, police said.
Police, however, said the Chase Bank call is believed to have been made about 10 minutes after the robbery occurred.
