The FBI is looking for the public's help in identifying a bank robber who targeted two Valley banks in the last week.

The "Goldeneye Bandit" last struck the Deer Valley Credit Union near Paradise Lane and 28th Avenue on August 25. Officials say the suspect demanded money from a teller, who complied and handed over an undisclosed amount of cash.

The suspect was reportedly wearing gold-rimmed glasses and had a black bag with him at the time.

The FBI says the circumstances behind the robbery were similar to that of another that occurred at Chase Bank near Central Avenue and Indian School Road on August 18. 

Officials say the suspect got money from a teller before fleeing northbound. Fortunately, no one was injured in either incident.

The suspect is described as a white man around 50 years old, about 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 200 pounds.
