San Francisco police believe one man is responsible for six bank robberies that have occurred in San Francisco and Oakland over the course of several months.
The robberies spanned from June 13 to Aug. 20, police said. Five were at banks in San Francisco's Chinatown and another was in Oakland.
The suspect's method is to demand money by passing the bank teller a note, police said. He is described as a thin, middle-aged Chinese man standing between 5 foot 6 inches and 5 foot 7 inches tall. He wears a cap or hat during the heists, police said.
Information regarding the series of robberies is asked to contact Inspector Dan Gardner at (415) 553-9255 or FBI Special Agent David Walden at (415) 553-7400.
