KPD/Courtesy This is a surveillance picture of the suspect in an armed robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank in Flagstaff on Sept. 28. The Kingman Police Department believes this is the same suspect from the armed robbery of Chase bank on Tuesday in Kingman.

The suspect in the armed robbery of Chase bank on Tuesday is believed to have committed a similar robbery in Flagstaff four days earlier.

The Kingman Police Department learned from the Flagstaff Police Department that a man matching the description of the suspect in the Kingman robbery is wanted in another armed robbery of a Wells Fargo Bank in Flagstaff on Sept. 28.

"The suspect in the Flagstaff robbery is believed to be the same in the Kingman robbery," KPD Sgt. Rusty Cooper said in a news release.

Neither police department has been able to identify the suspect in each case. Kingman Police detectives are still investigating the robbery. In both cases, a white male between 5-feet 6-inches and 6-feet tall entered the banks and demanded money from the tellers. The suspect(s), between the age of 25 and 30, then presented an unknown handgun. In both incidents, the suspect left with an unknown amount of cash.

In the Kingman robbery, the suspect was last seen wearing a white T-shirt, tan or khaki color shorts and a tan boonie hat. The suspect also appeared to have a large bandage on his chin.

In the Flagstaff robbery, the man was wearing a black or blue cap with a white patch, wire-frame glasses, a white T-shirt over a yellow T-shirt and tan baggy shorts. The suspect had brown hair and light stubble facial hair.

No one was injured in either armed robbery.
