Law Enforcement Seeking Public’s Assistance Identifying a Denver Area Bank Robber

The Denver, Aurora, and Greenwood Village Police Departments and the FBI Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force need your help identifying a bank robber. The banks robbed include:

  • US Bank
    8401 East Belleview Avenue
    Denver, Colorado
    December 22, 2017, 2:31 p.m.
  • First Bank
    6715 South Corner Star Way
    Aurora, Colorado
    January 8, 2018, 5:25 p.m.
  • Chase Bank
    8501 East Arapahoe Road
    Greenwood Village, Colorado
    January 22, 2018, 6:05 p.m.

The suspect, dubbed the “Horse Head Bandit” is described as a white male, 45 to 60 years of age, approximately 5’10” to 6’0” in height, medium build, and possible facial blemished or pock marked skin.

The suspect brandished a handgun to bank tellers, robbed the bank, and fled on foot. A silver sedan was observed departing the area with the suspect inside.

Please be on the lookout for anyone matching the suspect’s description. Be aware of anyone similar who might have recently changed their spending habits or discussed coming into money suddenly.

Bank robbery is punishable by a 20-year prison sentence for each offense and increases if a dangerous weapon is used in the commission of the crime.

The FBI continues to provide financial institutions with the best practices for security to make them less vulnerable to robberies.
