The Federal Bureau of Investigation is asking for the public’s help in identifying a bank robber.

The culprit is being referred to as the “Cyclical Bandit” and is believed to have robbed two Arizona banks within one year.

The first robbery happened Aug. 7 at a Chase Bank in Peoria and the second happened on Aug. 3 at a Smith's Grocery store in Kingman. In both cases, the suspect approached the teller, said he had a gun and demanded money.

He is described as a white man who is 5 feet 11 inches to 6 feet tall, roughly 45 to 60 years old with gray facial hair. He was last seen wearing a black ball cap with a “TEGNA" logo, a black T-shirt, tan shorts, and flip flops.

He should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information on the suspect or the robberies should contact the FBI Phoenix Field Office or Silent Witness at 480-WITNESS.
