Serial bank robber hits Huntington Bank in Shelby Township Friday

There was an eerie similarity between the two bank robberies in Metro Detroit this week.

Police believe they were committed by the same man.

At 10:30 a.m. on Friday, a Huntington Bank in Shelby Township near 24 Mile Rd and Hayes had a "temporarily closed" sign posted on the door following a robbery.

"I'm shocked, this is a very safe neighborhood," said one driver.

A man was caught on camera approaching the desk, brandishing a note and walking out with money.

"Suspect walked in, demanded cash produced with a note and walked out with the cash." said Captain Jason Schmittler of Shelby Township Police Department.

A similar occurrence happened the day before, when a bank in Chesterfield was robbed in a similar manner.

The suspect is described as a white male weighing 300 pounds, wearing a dark coat, hat and glasses. Police also want residents to be vigilant of a white sprinter type van.

"You cannot outrun the law, it's a long arm," said the driver.
