The suspect pictured is suspected of committing a series of bank robberies the first on January 16, 2013 at a Key Bank in Newcastle. The suspect most recently robbed the Sterling Savings Bank in Burien on June 8.

These are “take-over” robberies where the suspect is not afraid to control both customers and employees. The suspect is escalating in violence.  He fired a gun at one branch and struck a bank teller with his fist in another.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is encouraged to call the King County Sheriff’s Office, the Seattle Police Department or the FBI. Crime Stoppers is also offering a reward. All investigators are part of the Safe Streets Task Force.

The suspect is described as a black male,  5’07”, medium build, wears a mask but often forgets to pull it over his face (hence the photo’s).
