Suspect hits up 2 Tucson banks in one day

TUCSSON - Tucson Police need the public's help finding a man they say tried to rob one bank and successfully robbed another Monday.

Police say the suspect walked into the Bank of America located at 2885 North Campbell Avenue about noon wearing an AC/DC shirt and black pants along with some sort of wig and either a mask or facial makeup.

He handed a bag to the victim teller and ordered the teller to fill the bag with money. The teller was protected by bullet proof glass and refused to give the money to the suspect.

The suspect ran off.

About 90 minutes later, police say a suspect believed to be the same suspect from the earlier attempt entered the Bank of America located at 6285 East Broadway wearing a purple shirt, black dress pants, black dress shoes, a golfers cap, a black suitcase, using a cane and walking with a limp.

He had either a mask or some heavy makeup on his face. He handed a bag to the victim teller and ordered the teller to fill it with money. He was given an undisclosed amount of money and left.

The suspect description varied as either a Caucasian, Hispanic or African American male, 6'00" to 6'03" tall, medium build, bald with a facial disfigurement described as possible burn scars on his cheeks.

Anyone with information is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
