It is believed the suspect is connected to the following seven robberies:

  • March 30, 2015: U.S. Bank, 4610 Mission Street, San Francisco

The suspect is described as a black male, 6’2” to 6’4” tall, with an athletic build, possibly in his 30s to 40s, with probable tattoos on both arms. He has been seen wearing short-sleeved polo shirts, as well as a bomber-style jacket and aviator sunglasses, during a number of the robberies. The suspect has brandished a knife in two of the robberies and a hand gun during the two most recent robberies.

The suspect should be considered armed and dangerous.
