AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin police are trying to figure out if two bank robberies are connected.
The first one was Friday and then another one happened Saturday morning. On Saturday, a man went into a Wells Fargo in northwest Austin at about 10:20 a.m. Police were alerted and responded within minutes and arrested the suspect as he was leaving.
Police are interviewing witnesses and they also plan to show witnesses from Friday’s bank robbery a photo lineup to see if it’s the same man. That robbery happened at a bank just off US Highway 183.
Saturday’s incident was the 20th bank robbery of the year in Austin.
