    The female suspect allegedly robbed a US Bank on the 3200 block of University Avenue at about 11:23 a.m June 9, 2011. Less than two hours later, a male suspect robbed a Wells Fargo Bank on the 1300 block of Fashion Valley Road, the FBI said

    The FBI asked for the public's help Monday to identify a woman and man suspected of separately robbing a pair of San Diego-area banks on Saturday within two hours and less six miles apart of each other.

    The female suspect allegedly robbed a US Bank on the 3200 block of University Avenue at about 11:23 a.m. She used a demand note and, after receiving a sum of money, walked out of the bank, the FBI said.

    At about 1 p.m., a male suspect used a demand note when allegedly robbing a Wells Fargo Bank on the 1300 block of Fashion Valley Road. He reportedly threatened to have a weapon but did not brandish it, and he walked out of the bank after receiving an unspecified sum.

    The FBI is investigating the robberies as separate incidents.

    "There is nothing to lead us to believe they are connected at this time," said Darrell Foxworth, FBI spokesman.

    The first robbery's suspect is described as a heavy-set African-American woman who is 5-foot-11 and between the approximate ages of 35 and 40. She wore a long, green dress and a large tan or wicker hat over her dark hair.

    The second robbery's suspect is a medium-build African-American in his late 20s. He is about 6-foot and 180 pounds with short black hair. He wore a long-sleeve, dark-colored collared shirt and jeans.

    Tips can be submitted online, and the FBI main office number in San Diego is (858) 565-1255.
