NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

Metro police are continuing to investigate two separate bank robberies that occurred Tuesday afternoon.

The first incident was reported around Noon at Regions located at 500 S. Gallatin Pike.

Police reported the suspect entered the bank and presented a teller with a demand note.

The bank employee complied with the request before the suspect fled the scene in a dark, older model vehicle.

The suspect is described as a white male with blonde hair who appears to be in his late 40s or early 50s.

He is around five feet, eight inches tall and weighs around 185 pounds. At the time of the robbery he was wearing a dark baseball cap, a denim jacket and faded jeans.

The second robbery occurred at the Regions branch located at 4056 Nolensville Pike around 12 p.m.  

According to police, a Brinks security guard was robbed as he delivered a bag of money to the bank.

The suspect is said to have pepper-sprayed the guard in the face and took an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is also described as a white male around six feet tall and weighs around 200 pounds.

Police said the man covered his face with a piece of plastic or latex during the crime.

It is unclear if the two robberies are related.
