Sunglass-wearing robber hits two banks in popular Dallas neighborhoods

The Dallas FBI Violent Crimes Task Force and the Dallas Police Department are seeking the public's assistance in identifying a suspect who was responsible for two bank robbery offenses in Dallas on Saturday, December 20.

At 12:15 pm, a suspect wearing "distinctive mirrored sunglasses" entered the Bank of America at 5116 Greenville Ave. and verbally demanded cash from the bank teller. When he did not receive money, he fled the bank on foot.

At 1:40 pm, an individual believed to be the same suspect verbally demanded money from a teller at Chase Bank at 5220 W. Lovers Ln. After receiving an undisclosed amount of cash, he again fled on foot.

The subject indicated he had a weapon, but no one was physically injured during either incident.

The suspect is described as a black male, approximately 25-35 years old, 5-foot-10 and average build. His hair appears to be close-shaved, and he may have a receding hairline. He also has a close-shaved beard.

He wore a dark hoodie, dark pants and those distinctive mirrored sunglasses during both robberies. At one location, he wore a dark beanie-style cap with a light-colored logo.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is urged to call the Dallas office of the FBI at 972-559-5000.
