FBI seeks help identifying serial Bay Area bank robber

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The FBI is asking for the public’s help identifying a man suspected of robbing at least four Bay Area banks in the last four months.

The most recent robberies were “takeover” style and the suspect was wearing a disguise that included makeup and a dark colored wig.

The Comerica Bank, located at 2001 Union Street, was robbed on June 23 and again on July 11, 2016. In both robberies, the suspect displayed a handgun and stole an undisclosed amount of money.

The suspect is believed to be the same individual responsible for robbing the First Republic Bank in San Francisco on April 22 and the Provident Credit Union in San Mateo on May 12.

The suspect is described as a Black male in his early 30’s, about 6-feet tall with a skinny build. The suspect was reportedly wearing a wig with long hair.

The FBI is offering a cash reward up to a $10,000 for information leading to the apprehension and prosecution of the unknown suspect.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspected robber are requested to contact their nearest FBI office. The FBI can be reached 24 hours a day at 415-553-7400 in the San Francisco area. All calls are confidential. Tips can also be submitted at tips.fbi.gov.
