DAVENPORT (AP) -

Authorities say a man who robbed a Davenport bank Saturday afternoon might have tried to rob a different bank earlier in the day.

Authorities say a man successfully robbed a Wells Fargo branch downtown shortly before 1 p.m. Saturday.

A man matching the same description tried to rob Northwest Bank at 1454 W. Locust Street about three hours earlier.

In both cases, the suspect handed a teller a note demanding money.

At Wells Fargo, the man received an undisclosed amount of cash.

Davenport Police said the suspect in both cases was a black man in his 30s who wore a baseball cap, black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans.

He didn't display a weapon at either bank.
