Marquette Mall....and Chase Bank in Portage.

Those two robberies Tuesday occurred less than one hour apart.

the 5th of June.

In all three robberies...police say a bearded man with sunglasses and baseball cap on

fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

And walked out of the banks with a gym bag.
