TAMPA, FL (WFLA) - Tampa Police are trying to track down the people responsible for two late night ATM robberies and one possible hit at a hotel parking garage. Police released surveillance footage from the scene of one of the robberies.

Police say around 10:30 Tuesday night, Apryl Bailey drove up to the Bank of America ATM at 100 N. Westshore Boulevard. As she was taking out $20, a man walked up to her, pointed a gun at her, and took the money out of her hands, before driving away. 

Just twenty minutes later, around 11 p.m., down the street at 3030 W. Kennedy Boulevard, a similar crime happened. Paul Guijarro was taking $200 out of his account at the drive-up machine when someone got out of a car, pointed a gun at Guijarro and told him to drive away. The suspect took the money out of the machine and drove off. 

Early Wednesday morning, a man and a woman were attacked at the parking garage of the Grand Hyatt Hotel at 2900 Bay Port Drive. They were robbed at gun point by two people who drove up to them in a dark car.

No one was hurt. Investigators are working with Bank of America Security. K-9 and Air Service participated in the search.

Police say these three crimes may be related. They are looking for two people, a man and a woman. The man is described as thin build, with brown eyes and dark hair. The woman was skinny with a "bony" face blonde, in a black hoodie. They both were in their late 20s. Both were wearing bandanas covering their faces. The suspects were driving a black two or four-door sedan. They are both believed to be armed.
