DENVER — The Denver Police Department is hoping the public can help identify a man suspected of three bank robberies in the Denver metro area recently.
The first happened on October 15 at the Wells Fargo located at 1601 Blake Street in downtown Denver, according to a Facebook post from Metro Denver Crime Stoppers.
A few days later on October 19, police believe the same man robbed the First Bank at 1777 16th Street – which is only a couple blocks away from the initial robbery.
Then on November 23, another Wells Fargo, this one located at 3333 South Bannock Street in Englewood, was robbed.
Police believe all three robberies were committed by the same person. The suspect is described as an Asian man who is in his early 20s. He’s between 5’9” and 5’11” tall and has a thin build, police said.
In each instance, police said the suspect would give the bank teller a threatening note written on graph paper, but did not brandish a weapon. He would then flee the bank on foot.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. Tipsters can remain anonymous and could be eligible for an award up to $2,000.
