Law enforcement officials are seeking a woman they believe robbed two Boston banks in late July and early August.
The woman robbed the First Trade Union bank in Boston on Aug. 2 and five days earlier the City of Boston Credit Union in Dorchester, according to the FBI. Both times she wore a baseball cap, sliding a demand note to the teller and threatening them, then taking off on foot with the money.
Witnesses told authorities she also carried a gun during one of the robberies, according to the FBI.
The woman is described as white, in her mid-20s to mid-30s, with long brown hair and a medium height and build. She is considered armed and dangerous.
Men typically are more likely to rob a bank than women, FBI spokeswoman Gail Marcinkiewicz said. But there have been two other female bank robbers this year in the area, one in Saugus and one in Boston, she said.
