Federal Way police are trying to identify a man suspected of robbing a bank branch Thursday afternoon. The department released surveillance images of the suspect today in hopes of identifying him.

The man went into the Bank of America branch at 32011 Pacific Highway S. about 3:20 p.m. Thursday and handed a teller a note that demanded money, police reported. The bandit took an undisclosed amount of cash, his robbery note and left. He did not show a weapon or imply that he had one.

Investigators were looking into whether the same man is responsible for two other bank robberies – one in Vancouver, Wash., in December and another one in Federal Way in January, police reported.

The bank robber is described as white, in his 50s or younger, about 5 feet 5 and 215 pounds. He wore prescription glasses, a navy blue parka, black shirt and a dark-colored baseball-style had during the most recent robbery, police reported. He had brown hair with a little gray mixed in.

Anyone with information about the bank robber is asked to call Federal Way police detectives at 253-835-
6791.
