    Delaware State Police are looking for a woman they say tried to rob two banks in four days, but fled emptyhanded both times.

    Troopers said in a news release that the woman went into a PNC bank in Claymont Monday afternoon and gave a teller a note demanding cash. Police say the woman left before receiving money.

    Authorities say the same woman tried to rob a PNC Bank in New Castle Friday afternoon. Police say the woman presented a note demanding cash, but fled before getting money.

    Investigators say the woman is 19-year-old Tamera Segal of Powder Springs, Georgia. Troopers have obtained warrants and are asking for the public’s help in finding her.

    Authorities say Segal is black, about 5’11” tall, weighs about 150 pound and has black hair.
