But this time, whoever robbed it displayed a black, semi-automatic handgun, according to a statement from the Bloomfield Town Police Department.
At about 10:25 a.m. Tuesday, a white man wearing a white vintage hockey-style mask and a black hooded sweatshirt with a light-colored "fox" emblem on its front entered the bank and approached the employees.
He demanded money from the teller drawers.
An undisclosed amount of cash was placed into a bluish green bag. The man then fled the scene heading north on foot.
The subject also was described as wearing black pants, gloves and tennis shoes with white laces.
Police believe he is between 5-foot-9 and 6 feet tall, thin build, with short, dark-colored hair and a beard that was neatly trimmed along the jaw line but "bushy" at his chin.
No one was hurt during this robbery or the one which took place at about 9:56 a.m. Thursday, June 24.
In that robbery, two bank employees were left inside the bank vault for less than 15 minutes.
The June 24 suspect wore sunglasses, a bandana over his face and dark-colored clothes.
He demanded money and entry into the bank vault.
He took an undisclosed amount of money and fled the scene with two bank employees inside the vault.
The suspect appeared to be Caucasian, between 6-foot and 6-foot-3 and of slender to medium build. In addition to the sunglasses and bandana, he wore a dark-colored baseball cap and hooded sweatshirt; black cargo-style pants; and black boots.
