The FBI is asking for the public’s help in nabbing a ponytailed man suspected of sticking up at least four banks in Seattle and Bellevue over the past two months.
The suspect is considered armed and dangerous, and no one should approach him, says a news release from the FBI’s Seattle Safe Streets Task Force.
The most recent robbery occurred at a U.S. Bank branch in Bellevue on Monday. The first heist linked to the suspect was Sept. 7 in Seattle. Other Seattle robberies were at a Homestreet Bank on Oct. 2 and a People’s Bank on Oct. 30.
Described as a white male in his 30s or 40s, the suspect has a goatee. On at least one occasion, he wore a tropical-print shirt. For other robberies he donned a parka with a hood and a button-up shirt and baseball cap. He always wears sunglasses.
