TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Tucson Police Department is asking for the public's help identifying a suspect in two bank robberies. 

The most recent incident happened just before noon on Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the Tucson Federal Credit Union at 3801 East Speedway, according to a tweet from TPD spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Bay.  

TPD believes this is the second time this suspect has robbed a bank. The first incident happened around 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 when the suspect entered the Washington Federal Bank at 4910 East Broadway Boulevard.  According to TPD the suspect was armed with a handgun and wearing a disguise. The suspect pointed the gun at the tellers and demanded money, he left the bank on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.  

He was last seen heading southbound on Niven Avenue.  

This robbery suspect is described as a white man in his 40s, 5'9" to 6' tall, with a medium build.  He was seen at both robberies wearing overalls, a long sleeve plaid shirt, a reddish or auburn wig with a ponytail, a dark baseball cap, and mirrored sunglasses.  

Anyone who sees this suspect should not approach him, as TPD considers him to be armed and dangerous.  Those with information should call 911 or 88-CRIME (they can remain anonymous).
