    An unidentified woman, seen above on July 19, 2011, is suspected of robbing two banks.

    A woman robbed a Rancho Penasquitos bank Tuesday – just 10 days after FBI investigators say she did the same in a North Park bank.

    The woman entered the bank, located in an Albertsons on 14340 Penasquitos Dr. at about 10 a.m. She handed a threatening note to a bank employee demanding cash and, after receiving the money, walked out of the store, according to a FBI statement.

    Investigators believe the same woman may have robbed a US Bank on July 9 on 3201 University Ave. The suspect in that robbery also presented a demand note to a bank employee.

    Witnesses say the woman was wearing a sleeveless green print dress with dark sunglasses and dark curly hair pulled back.

    A witness also said she drove away in a white pick-up truck with a black stripe on the side.
