Man wanted in two D.C. bank robberies

Police departments are always looking for someone. Here's the latest suspect D.C. police have their sights set on, and want your help in locating.

An adult male, between 25 and 30 years old, between 5'11" and 6'1" tall and weighing between 180 and 200 pounds, allegedly went into the PNC Bank in the 3300 block of 14th St NW around 1:20 p.m. on Saturday Nov 14. He slipped a teller a note demanding money and made off with an unspecified amount, police said.

A week later, on Sat Nov. 21, the same suspect is believed to have gone into a Bank of America in the 3500 block of Georgia Avenue NW around 11:45 a.m. Again, the suspect slipped the teller a note, but ended up fleeing the scene without any loot, police said.

In one incident -- police didn't say which -- the robber was wearing a red sport or "running" type jacket with black thin stripes along the front, a black skull cap and light colored jeans. In the other incident, the suspect was wearing clothing described as a black jacket with a distinctive white, red and yellow abstract design on the front of it.

Yep, that description is really going to get the public's attention. Incredible - PC, agenda driven reporting at it's very worst.
