A Northampton County bank is returning to routine following a second robbery in less than two months.

Police say no one was injured in the latest holdup that happened late Tuesday afternoon at a Sovereign Bank in Wilson, near Easton Hospital.

A man witnesses describe as more than 6 feet tall with a shaved head and a goatee entered the branch and demanded money.

Police say the man left with an undetermined amount. Officials are investigating a report that a light-colored car was seen speeding from the area.

The bank was previously robbed about seven weeks earlier. A man dressed in black waited in line on March 3, calmly gave a teller a note demanding money and made off with a bag of cash. Police do not believe the robberies are related.
