TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Tucson police seek the public's help in identifying at least one suspect who attempted to rob two banks.

A woman allegedly entered the Compass Bank in the 6300 block of E. Speedway Blvd. on Monday and handed an employee a note demanding money, according to TPD Officer Brandon Tatum. The employee reportedly told the suspect to wait outside, which she did, and was quickly locked out of the building. She left without any money.

Tucson Police were called to the Pyramid Federal Credit Union in the 5800 block of E. Broadway Blvd. A woman presented a note and demanded a money in a similar fashion as the first attempted robbery, though police said there could be two suspects. She fled the credit union without any money.

No one was injured in either incident.

Authorities described the female suspect or suspects as African American, 5'7" to 5'9" tall, about 170 pounds, between 30 and 40 years old.

The suspect at the Pyramid credit union wore a straw hat, a tan blazer over a gray T-shirt, white pants, dark shoes and gloves. The suspect at Compass Bank was seen in the same clothing but in a dress instead of pants, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
