The FBI released photos of an armed robber who investigators say hit a TD Bank branch at bank 720 NW 57th Ave. Sunday afternoon.

A robber walked into a Miami TD Bank branch Sunday afternoon pointing a gun at employees and demanding money, according to the FBI.

Bank surveillance cameras captured images of the robber — who wore long sleeves, a hood and a face mask.

By Sunday evening, the FBI released photos of the armed robber who entered the bank, at 720 NW 57th Ave., just after 2 p.m. Sunday and left with an “undisclosed” amount of cash.

No customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery, and no one was injured.

Investigators say the robber left in a blue, newer model Cadillac Escalade.

Sunday’s bank robbery is the third TD Bank branch robbed over the weekend in Miami-Dade, according to the FBI.

A bank branch at 1103 Brickell Ave. and another at 9005 Biscayne Blvd. were both robbed Saturday morning. No one was injured in those robberies either.

Investigators do not believe the robberies are linked.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 754-703-2000 or Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS (8477).
