    A serial bank robber targeting banks in the Philadelphia area struck again on Sunday, according to investigators. FBI officials say the suspect has robbed four banks since the beginning of February.

    The latest incident happened Sunday around 12 p.m. in the city's Roxborough section. The suspect allegedly entered the TD Bank on 5501 Ridge Avenue and passed a demand note to a teller. Officials say he then stole an undisclosed amount of cash and fled the area on foot. He was last seen running north on Ridge Avenue then west on Markle Street.

    Investigators say it was the same TD bank the suspect tried to rob back on February 14. While he was unsuccessful during that attempt, police say he robbed the Sovereign Bank at 1 Belmont Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, Pa. less than a half an hour later that same day.

    Police also believe the suspect robbed the TD Bank on 401 West Lancaster Avenue in Haverford on February 12 and the Citizens Bank on 121 East City Line Avenue on February 2.

    The suspect is described as a medium built man in his late 20’s to mid 30’s, standing between 5-foot-9 and 5-foot-10 with a goatee. They also believe he wears dark-framed glasses.

    The suspect is considered armed and dangerous. If you have any information on him, please call the FBI at 215-418-4000.
