The Prince George’s County Police Department are asking the public’s assistance to identify a woman who, for the second time in a month, has held up a bank while dressed all in pink, according to the department’s blog.

On Dec. 27, 2013, at about 5:30 pm, the woman entered the Capital One Bank branch in the 5800 block of Eastern Avenue. She passed a teller a note demanding cash. Fearing for her safety, the teller complied. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money.

Twenty-five days earlier, on Dec. 2, 2013, a woman police believe to be the same suspect targeted the Capital One Bank branch in the 6200 block of Annapolis Road.

The suspect is described as a Black woman in her late 20s, approximately 5’8”-5’11” tall. In both cases, she wore a pink head wrap, a pink coat, and was holding a pink cell phone.

Anyone with information on this investigation is asked to call the CID Robbery Unit at 301- 772-4905. Callers can remain anonymous by calling CRIME SOLVERS at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). You may also text “PGPD plus your tips” to CRIMES (274637) on your cell phone or go to and submit a tip online. Crime Solvers is offering a CASH REWARD up to $1000 for tips that lead to an arrest and indictment in this case.
