A man is facing charges after two banks were robbed in Dartmouth Thursday within a half hour of each other.

At around 2 p.m., a man went into Royal Bank downtown on Portland Street and passed the teller a note demanding money.

Staff didn't see a weapon and the man walked out empty-handed.

Then just before 2:30 p.m., a man matching the description of the suspect in the first bank robbery passed a note to the teller at the Bank of Montreal at Mic Mac Mall.

It said he had a weapon -- which staff didn't see -- and he demanded money. Once again he walked out empty handed and was soon arrested.

No one was hurt in either incident.

A 68-year-old man will appear in court at a later date to face two charges of robbery.
