PHOENIX — The Federal Bureau of Investigation is looking to identify a serial bank robber wanted for holding up three Valley banks last year.

The “Bandaged Bandit” robbed grocery store banks in Phoenix, Tempe and Gilbert between June and August 2019.

The robber got his nickname because he was wearing a bandage around his hand during the Gilbert robbery and a bandage over the bridge of his nose during the Tempe robbery.

The suspect is described as a 5-foot-6 or 5-foot-7, 200-pound Hispanic male between the ages of 30 and 40.

The robber, who is considered armed and dangerous, typically wears a baseball hat and glasses during the heists.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to call the FBI’s Phoenix Field Office at 623-466-1999 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.

We want to hear from you.
