 Boston, MASS – The FBI’s Violent Crimes Task Force is seeking the public’s assistance to identify an unknown serial bank robber who robbed two banks in the Greater Boston area from July 28-August 11.

 The robber is a black male, medium athletic build, approximately 25-30 years old, 5’8” to 6’ tall, is clean shaven and may have a tattoo on the right side of his neck. While a weapon has not been displayed during any of the robberies, the suspect has gestured to his waist, as if reaching for a weapon. He is considered ARMED AND DANGEROUS.

 On Monday, July 28, 2014, at approximately 10:20 a.m., the robber entered Century Bank located at 703 Granite Street, Braintree, Massachusetts. The robber wore a long sleeve button-up dress shirt, yellow tie, sunglasses, and a Red Sox baseball hat. He produced a note to the teller demanding money, once the money was received; he fled the bank in an unknown direction.
