    Philadelphia police need the public's help locating an alleged robber who targeted four banks within the past three weeks.

    The Philadelphia Police Department is on the hunt for a serial bank robber.

    Officers say the suspect allegedly got away with wads of cash during a robbery at the Citizens Bank located at 7327 Frankford Avenue on Monday. Investigators say the same person robbed a Wells Fargo bank on Nov. 29, a PNC bank on Dec. 7 and the Firstrust bank on Dec. 14 of this year. 

    During Monday’s robbery, the suspect allegedly handed a threatening note to a teller. Police say he fled -- after getting his hands on an undisclosed amount of cash -- in an older model, cream colored Mazda sedan. Another male was allegedly in the car.

    The suspect is accused of handing threatening notes in each of the robberies but, so far, there have been no injuries.

    Police describe the man as being a white male in his 20’s, about  5’7” to 5’9” tall, medium build, with brown hair, scruffy facial hair, wearing large aviator sunglasses, a gray hooded sweatshirt and a red Phillies baseball cap.

    The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. Anyone with information is asked to call the Philadelphia Police Department or the FBI at 215-418-4000. There may be a reward for information leading to the man’s arrest.
