SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - The FBI is asking the public for help in locating a bank robbery suspect dubbed the "Skinny Bandit."
The suspect is believed to be behind at least three San Diego robberies within the last month:
- June 9 at 10:44 a.m.: Robbery of US Bank at 9400 Mira Mesa Blvd., San Diego
- June 12 at 3:55 p.m.: Robbery of Chase Bank at 1467 Main Street, Ramona
- June 14 at 12:20 p.m.: Attempted robbery of Bank of America at 1407 Main Street, Ramona
In the three crimes, the man concealed his face with a pair of sunglasses and a bandana. The suspect is described as a 6-foot African American man, weighing between 140 and 170 pounds, with a skinny or slender build.
It's unclear if the man has been armed on the three occasions. The FBI says he has threatened bank tellers with a weapon but it has not been seen.
Anyone with information is asked to call San Diego FBI at 858-320-1800 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
