For the second time in as many months, a man has robbed the same PNC Bank branch inside aTowson Giant Food store.

Baltimore County police say on July 19, a man handed a note to the teller at the Loch Raven Boulevard branch, implied he had a weapon and then left the store with an undisclosed amount of money.

Investigators released surveillance images of the man Wednesday and described him as black, in his early 40s, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing about 190 pounds. He was wearing sunglasses and a black baseball cap with numerous pins.

This is the third robbery of a PNC branch in the last two months and the second at the same location in the Giant store. A younger, shorter man, with tattoos on his right forearm, held up the supermarket bank location on June 4, and two men robbed the branch in Broadmead, a senior housing facility in Cockeysville on May 19.

Police have not established any connections in the robberies. Anyone with information about the identity or whereabouts of any of the suspects is asked to call Baltimore County Police at 410-307-2020 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (1-866-756-2587).
