Metro Police is seeking the public’s help in identifying a man who attempted to rob two banks but left empty-handed both times.
The first attempt occurred about 3:40 p.m. Aug. 17 at a bank near South Durango Road and Warm Springs Road, according to a Metro Police news release issued Thursday. Twelve days later, at 3:40 p.m. Wednesday, a suspect attempted a robbery at a bank near South Fort Apache Avenue and Flamingo Road.
Police believe the same man was involved in both attempts.
In both incidents, the suspect presented the teller with a note demanding money but left with no money.
The suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, about 5-foot-5 to 5-foot-8 tall, and weighing 180 to 230 lbs. During Wednesday’s attempted robbery, he was wearing a white fisherman-style hat, a collared shirt, camouflage-colored shorts and white shoes.
Police urge anyone with information to call Metro’s robbery detail at 828-3591 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
