PHOENIX — Agents with the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Phoenix office is asking the public to help identify two suspects in four separate bank robbery cases.

The first case involved an African-American male who allegedly entered a Chase Bank near Indian School Road and 107th Avenue in Avondale on Jan. 31. The man presented a robbery demand note to a teller, obtained a known amount of money and left the bank.

That same day, the same man allegedly entered a different Chase Bank near 59th Avenue and Thomas Road in Phoenix, presented a robbery demand note, obtained the cash and left.

The suspect is described as a 5’6″ male between the ages of 33 and 38 with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, light-colored sport sunglasses with dark lenses and a light-colored pullover sweatshirt with a red, white, and dark stripe across the chest and arms.

The second case involved a dark-skinned woman who allegedly entered an Academy Bank near Bethany Home Road and 15th Avenue in Phoenix on Feb. 10. The woman displayed a robbery demand note and a handgun to the teller, obtained money and left the scene.

That same day, that same woman allegedly entered the Alaska Federal Credit Union near 48th Street and Indian School road in Phoenix, presented a note and the handgun, took the cash and left.

The suspect is described as a 5’5″ to 5’7″ female with black hair. She is between the ages of 35 and 45 and is believed to be between 140 and 160 pounds. She was seen wearing a white, long sleeve shirt and dark blue jean pants and carrying a black purse.

The robberies are unrelated to one another. Anyone with information about the suspects’ identities or whereabouts is encouraged to contact the FBI’s Phoenix Field Office at 623-466-1999 or can submit tips online at
