Police seeking public’s help identifying suspect who robbed Burien bank
The King County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help identifying the man pictured below, who is suspected of committing a series of bank robberies – one of which occurred at Sterling Savings Bank in Burien on June 8:
The suspect is described as a black male, 5’07”, medium build, and he wears a mask but often forgets to pull it over his face (hence the photos).
He is accused of doing “take-over” robberies where he is not afraid to control both customers and employees. The suspect has been escalating in violence. He fired a gun at one branch and struck a bank teller with his fist in another.
The first robbery happened January 16, 2013 at a Key Bank in Newcastle.
The suspect is considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information is encouraged to call the King County Sheriff’s Office at (206) 296-3311, the Seattle Police Department or the FBI.
