D.C. police seek quadruple bank robbery suspect
D.C. police are asking for the public's help in identifying a bank robber who has struck four times since November, hitting banks in Capitol Hill and downtown Washington.
Police describe the suspect as a black male, 5-foot-10 to 6 feet tall, weighing 150 to 160 pounds. The suspect is described as having a dark complexion and gray facial hair.
He has been seen wearing wire-framed glasses, a black skullcap and a black leather jacket or a dark hooded coat, according to police. He has been seen carrying a black bag across his shoulder.
Police said the man is suspected of robbing the PNC Bank in the 600 block of Pennsylvania Avenue SE about 2:15 p.m. Friday.
The man is also suspected of robbing three other banks: the Chevy Chase Bank in the 600 block of F Street NW on March 8, the Chevy Chase Bank in the 1200 block of Pennsylvania Avenue NW on Jan. 6 and the Chevy Chase Bank in the 300 block of Pennsylvania Ave SE on Nov. 23.
In each of the robberies, the man gave a teller a note demanding money, implied he had a gun and obtained cash.
Police ask anyone with information about the crimes to call police at 202-727-9099 or at 1-888-919-2746. The police department is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for anyone who provides information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspect.
