KINGMAN - Did lighting strike twice for a lucky bank robber?
The Kingman Police Department believes the same suspect who robbed a Wells Fargo bank in Bullhead city on Nov. 14 may have hit the Bank of America in the 2300 block of Stockton Hill Road Friday afternoon.
The descriptions from the Bank of America and the Wells Fargo crimes are very similar: A white male about 6-feet tall and average build, in his 60s or 70s with a hearing aid in his left ear and a gray mustache. He was wearing a blue button-up denim shirt, a light gray hoodie, a black coat, jeans, a camouflage ball cap and black-framed glasses.
The man entered the bank around 12:50 p.m. and presented a note to a bank teller threatening to use force if he wasn't given the money. No weapons were involved in the robbery and the suspect did not brandish a weapon. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police believe the man walked around the back of the bank building when he left, but they have not been able to confirm this information with surveillance video from the bank or any nearby businesses.
