The “Mismatch Bandit” is wanted by the FBI and Phoenix police, believed to be responsible for at least 14 recent robberies in the Phoenix area.

The FBI says the suspect has been coined the Mismatch Bandit because of his clothes worn during the robberies, and the lack of any pattern to the locations he has chosen to rob.

The first known robbery by the suspect was a Cricket store on August 2. The most recent known location was a Domino's store on September 29.

Businesses robbed include Goodwill, Subway, CVS, and Metro PCS among several others.

The suspect is described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, and 155 to 175 pounds. He has dirty blond hair with a receding hairline, and blue or green eyes.

No injuries have been reported in any of the incidents.

Anyone with any information on the suspect and the robberies is urged to contact the FBI or Phoenix police.
