Hagerstown police were investigating an armed robbery Saturday morning at the M&T Bank branch on Dual Highway, the third time this week a Dual Highway business has been robbed at gunpoint.

At 9:54 a.m., police received a report that a man had entered the bank, went to the teller counter, pulled a handgun and demanded cash. The man made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and last was seen running north toward Weis Market.

A K-9 team tracked the man, but the trail was lost in the parking lot on the west side of Weis Market, police said.

The man was described as black, and about 5 feet 6 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a dark hooded sweat shirt with the hood up, a black ski mask covering his face and blue jeans.

No one was injured in the incident, police said.

On Monday at 9:10 a.m., city police responded to an armed robbery of the PNC Bank branch at 1700 Dual Highway. That man went behind the teller counter armed with a handgun, demanded cash and fled on foot.

The robber in that case was described as black, about 6 feet tall, and wearing a black hooded jacket, ski mask and black gloves.

On Friday about 7:50 p.m., city police responded to an armed robbery at Brothers Pizza Express at 1732 Dual Highway. In that incident, a man entered the store, grabbed a tip jar and brandished a handgun, police said. The man then fled on foot toward an apartment complex behind the shopping plaza.

The suspect was described as black, and wearing a dark hooded sweat shirt with a mask covering the lower half of his face, police said.
