TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A man dressed in a wig and mask or facial makeup robbed one Bank of America branch and attempted to rob another Monday, Tucson police said.

He eluded capture and remains at large, Tucson Police Sgt. Chris Widmer said.

No one was injured in either incident.

At 11:55 a.m., the suspect, wearing an AC/DC shirt and black pants, ordered a teller at the branch at 2885 North Campbell Ave. to fill a bag with money, Widmer said.

The teller was protected by bullet proof glass and refused. The man fled on foot and was not located.

At 1:29 p.m., the same suspect entered the Bank of America at 6285 East Broadway Blvd., wearing a purple shirt, black dress pants, black dress shoes and a golfer's cap. He was using a cane and walking with a limp. He had either a mask or some heavy makeup on his face, Widmer said.

He ordered the teller to fill a bag with money and was given an undisclosed amount of cash. He fled on foot.

The suspect was 6-foot to 6-foot-3-inches tall, with a medium build, Widmer said. He was bald with a facial disfigurement, described as possible burn scars on his cheeks.
