This man, shown in photos taken from surveillance video, is wanted in the Aug. 13 robbery of a bank near Windmill Lane and Eastern Avenue (bottom row) and the Oct. 31 robbery of a bank near Las Vegas Boulevard and Blue Diamond Road (top row).

A middle-aged man wearing sunglasses and a Pittsburgh Steelers ballcap robbed a Las Vegas bank Wednesday, apparently his second such robbery in less than three months.

Metro Police said that around 4:40 p.m., the suspect went to a bank in the area of Las Vegas Boulevard and Blue Diamond Road and presented a teller with a note demanding money. The robber then left on foot with an unspecified amount of cash, police said.

Police believe the suspect is also the culprit in an Aug. 13 bank robbery near Windmill Lane and Eastern Avenue.

In both robberies, the suspect is a white man, 50 to 60 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet tall with a heavy build. In both cases, the suspect wore sunglasses and a Steelers ballcap, although surveillance photos show him with different models of Steelers caps.

Anyone with information about the theft or the whereabouts of the suspect is asked to Metro call at 828-3204 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
