(Updated at 11:20 a.m.) A man suspected of robbing a bank in NoMa yesterday afternoon has appeared on surveillance camera footage.

The robbery happened at the Premier Bank on the 1100 block of 1st Street NE about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, police said.

Authorities are looking for:

A black male, 30-40 years of age, heavy build, medium complexion, 6’1″ in height, 190-200 lbs., bald head, brown eyes, wearing a navy blue and grey shirt, and blue jeans. The subject also has two bruises under eyes.

Further information on the crime wasn’t immediately available.

Two men also stole a car from two people at gunpoint in Hill East early this morning, police said.

The armed carjacking happened near the intersection of 18th Street and Independence Avenue SE about 1:15 a.m.

    8th and Independence isn’t Hill East — that doesn’t start until the mid-teens. 8th is next to Eastern Market. These car-jackings are ridiculous. Haven’t even seen a cop in the neighborhood (except helicopters) in days.
