saints-bank-robberTacoma police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man suspected of robbing two banks in a week.

The man allegedly held up a Key Bank branch in the 3500 block of South 19th Street June 28 and a U.S. Bank branch on South 38th Street Thursday.

In both cases, police said he was armed with a gun and handed the teller a threatening note demanding money.

He is described as black, in his 20s with a thin build and short black hair. During one of the robberies he was wearing a black jacket with “USA” and the Olympics logo on the left chest, black gloves and a black and gold striped New Orleans Saints baseball cap.

Tipsters may remain anonymous and could receive up to a $1,000 reward from Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers if the man is arrested and charged.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
