AUSTIN (KXAN) - A bank robber managed to hit two separate banks in Austin on Tuesday in less than an hour.

The robber hit Prosperity Bank at 8770 Research Blvd. in North Austin at 10 a.m. and then the Frost Bank in the1200 block of Barbara Jordan Boulevard in Central Austin at 10:40 a.m.

Police said the robber ran away from both banks, though no one knew in which direction he went each time.

While he did not show a weapon, he managed to leave with money from both banks.

Less than a month ago, a bank robbery suspectsparked SWAT team response in North Austin.

The suspect had barricaded himself inside a home after the bank robbery at the Bank of America at 2511 West Parmer Lane. A witness followed the suspect from the bank to a home on Northridge Drive and alerted police.

Though the man was armed, he later surrendered to police.
