Akron police are busy investigating two separate robberies that happened within hours of each other Wednesday evening.
Employees at the First Merit Bank on Brittain Road told police a man slapped a note on the counter stating that he had a gun and wanted money.
He ran out of the bank with an unknown amount of cash. The suspect has been identified as William Hawes, 26, of Medina.
Around three hours later, a delivery driver for Pizza Hut on East Market Street was robbed near Johnston Street and Johnston Court. The driver gave the suspect about $25 in cash.
The suspect is described as a 23 - 28 year-old male, about 5'10'' - 6'0'', 150 -160 lbs with a beard and mustache. He was seen wearing dark colored jeans, a short sleeve shirt, white t-shirt and a black, flat billed baseball hat.
