Two banks just blocks apart were robbed within minutes of each other in San Francisco's Financial District Tuesday afternoon, police said.

The first robbery occurred around 1 p.m. at a bank in the 200 block of California Street, where a man in his 50s walked in and demanded money.

A teller handed him money and he left the bank on foot.

Only minutes later, at 1:06 p.m., a robbery was reported at a bank in the first block of California Street, where a man described as being between 60 and 70 entered the bank and demanded money.

A teller again handed the man money and he fled.

No injuries were reported in either robbery, and no arrests have been reported. Police have not indicated whether the two robberies are thought to be connected.
