Cherry Hill Police are looking for information that will help them apprehend a man they say robbed two women at knifepoint outside of a pair of township banks Tuesday afternoon.

The first incident occurred around 1:40 p.m. at the Bank of America located in the unit block of Route 70 West.

The second happened just 40 minutes later, at 2:20 p.m. outside the TD Bank in the 300 block of North Kings Highway.

Police believe both robberies were committed by the same man.

In each instance, they said he targeted women who were alone, approached with a knife, and stole cash from them.

He later fled in a white, four-door sedan that investigators think may be a Kia Optima.
