A man who authorities believe to be a serial bank robber struck again in Prince George's County last week, police said.

The man entered the M&T Bank at 3700 Donnell Drive in Forestville about 2:40 p.m. on Wednesday. He approached a teller, handed her a note and demanded money. The teller complied and the robber fled, according to Prince George's County police and the FBI.

Police believe that the same man robbed two other banks in Prince George's County over the past several weeks. The first robbery occurred March 20 at a SunTrust Bank at 8924 Woodyard Road in Clinton. The second occurred April 15 at the Capital One Bank at 3601 St. Barnabas Road in Suitland.

In both of those robberies, the culprit received money after passing notes to tellers, authorities said.

The robber has been described as a black man in his 20s, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 160 to 170 pounds, with a light complexion, medium build and braided dreadlocks.

During the most recent robbery, the man was wearing a black hooded sweater, a gray or black jacket and green shoes.

Anyone with information can call the FBI at 202-278-2000 or Prince George's County Crime Solvers at 866-411-TIPS (8477), text "PGPD" along with a message to 274637, or visit pgpolice.org.
