FBI Media Alert: FBI, Albuquerque Police Look for Nike Cap-Wearing Bank Robber

An unidentified man wearing a blue Nike baseball cap robbed a northeast Albuquerque bank on Friday, October 1, 2021, likely the second bank robbery this suspect has committed in less than a week.

The suspect robbed U.S. Bank, 5620 Wyoming Blvd. NE, at approximately 11:38 a.m.

He is described as a white male in his 20s to 30s, approximately 5'7” tall, and weighing about 120 pounds.

The suspect wore a blue Nike baseball cap, a white hospital mask, a long-sleeve red plaid shirt, blue hospital gloves, and blue jeans.

He entered the bank and presented a demand note to a teller, who handed over an undisclosed amount of money to the suspect.

The suspect fled on foot to a nearby Walmart parking lot.

This individual is likely the same suspect who robbed Bank of the West, 2101 Eubank Boulevard NE, on Tuesday.

The Albuquerque Police Department is assisting with this investigation.
