EXETER - A tattooed robber in Carhartt clothing who allegedly hit People’s United Bank in Exeter Friday afternoon could be linked to a hold up last weekend at TD Bank in Stratham, police said.

Exeter police responded to the bank at 1 Center St. just after 1 p.m. after a white male entered and approached a teller with a note claiming he had a weapon, police said.

The man didn’t brandish a weapon and no injuries were reported.

Police said he fled on foot and entered a black, newer model sedan, possibly a Toyota Camry, with New Hampshire license plates.

He was described as being between 35 and 45 years of age, approximately 5 feet 5 inches with tattoos on his neck and hands.

Police said he was wearing a navy blue Carhartt hooded sweatshirt with Carhartt written down the left arm in white letters. He also wore an olive green colored baseball hat with a white logo.

Meanwhile, Stratham police continue to investigate the robbery at TD Bank that occurred about 10:35 a.m. Jan. 13.

Police described that robber as wearing an oversized black Carhartt hoodie, a black and red baseball cap, gray sweatpants and gray sneakers.

Similar to the alleged Exeter robber, Stratham police said the robber at TD Bank appeared to be about 5 feet 3 inches, and between 35 and 45 years old; he was also reported to have tattoos on both sides of his neck.

Exeter Police Capt. Stephan Poulin said a Stratham detective who assisted at the Exeter robbery indicated that it appears to be the same man.

Police are asking anyone with information on the man’s identity to call the Exeter Police Department at 772-1212 and to speak with Detective Sgt. Steven Bolduc. Tips can also be left anonymously.

Anonymous tips can also be provided through SeacoastCrimestoppers.com or by calling phone at 431-1199. Tips that lead to an arrest and/or conviction can be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
