Bank robbed

A man with an apparent affinity for baseball caps is suspected of robbing his second southwest valley bank in a week, this time striking around noon Thursday at a bank near South Rainbow Boulevard and West Robindale Road.

Metro Police officials said a man wearing a light blue Kansas City Royals hat approached the bank clerk, said he was armed and demanded money. The clerk gave the man an undisclosed amount of money and then the suspect fled.

The same man is suspected of robbing a bank Sept. 27 near South Durango Drive and West Warm Springs Road. Then, the man wore a black San Francisco Giants baseball cap, and approached the teller with a handgun and demanded money. The teller complied and the suspect fled.

Police describe the robber as a thin, 6-foot white man in his 20s with blue eyes and freckles.

Officials urge anyone with information to call Metro Police Robbery Section at (702) 828-3591 or to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.

  1. The boldness is so striking. I hope he gets caught just like the 'plaid clad' jerk from a while ago.
