Tacoma police believe a man suspected of robbing a U.S. Bank branch June 24 struck again Friday.
The latest robbery occurred about 4:55 p.m. at the Key Bank branch in the 3500 block of South 19th Street. The man entered the bank and handed a teller a note that read he was armed and wanted cash. He got some money and ran off, police said.
Witnesses said the robber is a black man in his 20’s, about 5 feet 7 with a thin build and short black hair. During Friday’s robbery he wore a black jacket with “USA” and the Olympic rings logo on the left chest, black gloves and a black-and-gold striped New Orleans Saints baseball hat.
Police think he also is responsible for a bank robbery on June 24th at a U.S. Bank on South 38th Street in Tacoma.
