Bank robber dons sunglasses in heists

SACRAMENTO — Police are requesting the community’s help in tracking down a male suspect who has robbed two banks in Sacramento this month and may be involved in other robberies in the region.

The suspect, a 5-foot-7 African American man in his 30s with a medium build, has worn sunglasses and a knitted cap or hooded sweatshirt in each of his robberies. His modus operandi is to approach a teller, demand money and the flee on foot once he’s been given an undisclosed amount of cash.

On Dec. 21, at 4:38 p.m, the suspect entered a bank near Folsom Boulevard and Watt Avenue, where he demanded money from the teller and then fled on foot after obtaining the cash. Earlier that same day, at 9:55 a.m., security cameras recorded the suspect walking into a bank near West El Camino Avenue and Truxel Road. He waited in line but left the bank as he got to the front of line without contacting any employee. It is unknown what the suspect’s intent was during this incident.

Earlier this month, on Dec. 10, at 10:47 a.m., the suspect robbed a bank near Folsom Boulevard and 64th Street using the same modus operandi.

Authorities have released surveillance images of the suspect hoping someone in the community will be able to identify him to police.
