A Key Bank in the 3900 block of North 26th Street was robbed this afternoon for the second time this month by similar looking suspects, according to Tacoma police.

The Proctor-area bank was robbed just after 4 p.m. by a man wearing a black mask, according to police spokeswoman Loretta Cool.

The suspect was of a similar height and build to a suspect who robbed the bank the morning of Jan. 7 while wearing a red mask, Cool said. Both suspects wore gloves, she said.

The suspect in the Jan. 7 robbery did not have a weapon or imply that he had one, according to police. A weapon was not visible in surveillance footage of today’s robbery, Cool said.

A teenager was arrested in connection with robbing the bank earlier this month, and a suspected accomplice in that robbery was arrested and charged with first-degree robbery.

Further details about today’s robbery were not immediately available.
