Authorities believe a pair of women is responsible for two bank robberies that occurred in the region this month.

One of the robberies took place at about 4:30 p.m. on May 13 in the District. During that incident, the women entered the TD Bank located at 905 Rhode Island Ave. NE, approached the teller and demanded money. They obtained cash that contained a dye pack. When the women left the bank, the pack exploded in the parking lot, according to FBI officials.

A week earlier, there was a bank robbery at the Capital One Bank at 6206 Annapolis Road in the Landover area. During that robbery, the women passed notes demanding money to two different tellers. They received an undisclosed amount of cash and were seen fleeing the area in a tan Chrysler Concorde, Prince George's County police said.

The women have been described as black and in their late 20s. They did not display a weapon nor indicated they had one in either incident.

In the May 13 robbery, one of the women was wearing blue jeans, a black long-sleeved shirt, and a dark purple scarf that covered her face and head. She also was carrying a pink and khaki-colored floral backpack. The second woman was wearing a blue-jean jacket, a red shirt, dark colored jeans, white athletic shoes and a black scarf that covered her face and head.

Anyone with information can call the FBI at 202-278-2000, D.C. police at 202-727-9099 or Prince George's County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477).
