The Eastern Savings Bank at 2060 Commonwealth Ave. was robbed for the second time in eight days yesterday morning, Newton police said.

According to employees, the suspect handed a note to a teller demanding money. After obtaining an undetermined amount of money, the suspect fled west on Commonwealth Avenue. No weapon was shown during the robbery.

Police believe the suspect, described as being in his late 20s or 30s, is responsible for the robberies at the Eastern Savings Bank and two at Citizens Bank earlier yesterday morning, in Waltham and in Arlington.

The FBI Bank Robbery Task Force and the Newton Police Detective Bureau are investigating the Eastern Savings Bank robbery.
