NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A masked man with a gun robbed two Hendersonville banks Saturday afternoon.

At approximately 12:44 p.m. Saturday, the suspect entered the SunTrust bank on E. Main Street, brandished a handgun and robbed the bank.

Then around 12:56 p.m., the same suspect walked into the Bank of America on W. Main Street, handed the teller a note and pulled a gun. The teller complied and gave the suspect money before they left.

The suspect is described as having on an “old man” mask, sunglasses, a floppy hat, tan jacket and dark colored pants. Police could not be sure if the suspect is a man or a woman.

“I would ask that people look at the gait of the person, the other clothes the person was wearing in order to find out if they have some sort of idea who that person might be,” said Det. Lt. Jim Vaughn with the Hendersonville Police Department.

Police believe the suspect was operating a 2014 to 2015 black Nissan Sentra that was seen in the area on surveillance footage.

If you have any information, you are urged to contact the Hendersonville Crime Stoppers at 615-573-5400.
