Detectives need help identifying a duo who robbed two Houston area banks in the past three weeks. The two suspects were captured on surveillance video wearing the same clothing during both robberies.

The most recent robbery happened at a bank inside a grocery store in the 12000 block of Jones Road; the second heist occurred on June 25 in the 3100 block of Holcombe Boulevard.

During Friday's robbery, one of the suspects approached the employee, announced he was robbing the bank and threatened he had a weapon. He then pulled out a snub-nose chrome revolver from his waist band and demanded cash.

The duo took the money and drove away in a dark gray or black truck, possibly a Chevy Avalanche.

No one was injured during either robbery.

Both suspects are described as black males between the ages of 20 and 25 who are about 6 feet tall and weigh around 170 pounds.

Witnesses believe one of the suspects had short black hair visible under his hat. He had a light beard, mustache, and a goatee. In both robberies, he wore a red baseball-type cap with an eagle emblem on the front, blue jeans, and a light blue long-sleeved button-down collared shirt. He also carried a snub-nose chrome revolver during the robbery.

The second suspect was possibly clean shaven. In both robberies, he wore a black San Francisco Giants baseball cap, black pants and a black long-sleeved shirt. Witnesses observed a tattoo of the letter "A" on the side of his neck and the letter "O" on the back of his neck.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 713-222- 8477.
