She reportedly demanded money from a bank employee. Customers were in the bank at the time of the robbery, but no one was injured. Court documents show she took about $600 from the bank.

The suspect in that robbery is believed to be the same person who robbed a Boynton Beach TD Bank branch on Nov. 2, the FBI said. In that case, a woman entered the bank on the 1600 block of West Boynton Beach Boulevard, west of Congress Avenue, shortly after 8:30 a.m. wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with “W73” on the front and a pink Super Bowl XLIII hat.

The woman, who witnesses said was between 50 and 60 years old, handed a bank teller a note demanding cash. She told the teller she was armed, but witnesses did not see a weapon.

The woman left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money, according to the FBI. Witnesses said she was wearing white shorts and beige loafers. Clark has not been charged in the Boynton Beach bank robbery.
