Tacoma police today released a description of a man suspected of robbing a North End bank branch twice this month.

The man is white, about 5-feet-10 and was wearing a black jacket, black ski mask, jeans and white gloves.

He walked into the Key Bank branch in the 3900 block of North 26th Street about 4 p.m. and yelled at a customer to get out. He then demanded money from the teller, at one point reaching around the counter to grab cash himself.

Police said he did not appear to be armed.

He is believed to be the same man who held the bank up Jan. 7 in a similar fashion.

A teenager and another man have been charged with robbing the bank Jan. 14.
