Four bank robberies since May 29 have Milwaukee Police Detectives searching for as many as three robbers that may be responsible.
The most recent robbery was today, June 9 at the U.S. Bank, 2303 N. Farwell Ave. at 10:30 a.m. The suspect presented a demand note for money and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash. He is described as a black male late teens, early 20s, 5’5″ tall, wearing an LA Kings baseball cap. He had on a black jacket with a white T shirt underneath.
The video below shows a different bank robbery on May 29 at 11: 53 a.m. at the Tri City National Bank, 3378 S. 27th St., but Milwaukee Police believe the same robber hit again June 8, at the North Shore Bank, 4230 W. Oklahoma Ave. at 9:13 a.m.
In both instances, the suspect entered the bank, approached the teller with a demand note for money and fled the scene with cash. In the June 8 robbery, the suspect pushed a female customer away from a teller window and then tried to rip her cash out of her hand. She struggled with him and the money was ripped in half.
As the suspect fled through the parking lot, a dye pack contained in the money detonated and the suspect may have red dye on himself or inside the black bag he was carrying.
He is described as a black male, 30-40 years old, 5′ to 5’4″ tall, medium build. He wore a multicolored wig in the robbery on the video and a shoulder-length blonde wig in the North Shore robbery today. He wore a black baseball cap with a Nike swish on the front, dark sunglasses, and a black hooded sweatshirt with three letters on the front – the center letter appears to be a “C.” The letters are maroon with a white outline.
He had about 2-3 days’ growth of beard, which was salt & pepper in color. Anyone with information is asked to call Milwaukee Police at 414-935-7360
At 4:12 p.m. Friday, June 8, a different bank robber hit the Associated Bank, 2590 N. Downer Ave. He is described as a black male, 5’6″ – 6′ tall, 160-190 lbs.
