Two more bank robberies this week in West Virginia.

The Monongalia County Sheriff's Department is investigating and searching for a suspect after an armed robbery at the Huntington Branch Bank in Blacksville Thursday.

Sheriff Al Kisner says a man armed with a rifle entered the bank and demanded money, with something covering his face, a camouflage outfit and sunglasses.

The suspect exited a side door of the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash, fleeing into the nearby woods, he said.

No one was hurt during the robbery.

The robbery comes just more than a week after a hold up at a WestBanco branch in Bruceton Mills.

A man and woman held up that bank and are persons of interest in similar robberies in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Huntington Bank is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction of the robber.

A Charleston, Kanawha City bank was also robbed Thursday. A man entered the bank behaving erractrically and held it up with a pistol. Police say he was "brazen." He got away with an unspecified amount of cash from the Fifth Third Bank.
