A suspected serial bank robber -- sporting his trademark fake nose -- on Wednesday struck a St. Louis Park bank branch for the second time, the FBI said.
The holdup is the latest of many recent bank robberies in metro-area grocery stores that authorities "are reviewing ... to determine if this person is responsible," said FBI spokesman Kyle Loven.
Wednesday's holdup occurred about 10 a.m. at a U.S. Bank inside the Byerly's near Hwy. 100 and Excelsior Boulevard, according to the FBI. The man showed the teller a handgun, demanded cash and left on foot.
He was described as black with a light complexion, about 6 feet, 2 inches tall and roughly 220 pounds. Along with the fake nose, the robber had on makeup, a black baseball cap, a dark jacket and a dark shirt.
The FBI asked that anyone with information call them at 763-569-8000 or St. Louis Park police at 952-924-2600.
The robber wore a fake nose in three of the previous heists and had on the same clothing in two, according to police. He's also shown a handgun at times.
Until Wednesday's holdup, the robber has made dapper fashion choices, including a fedora, dress shirts, cuff links, dress slacks, a suit or sport coat, and a long-sleeve V-neck sweater.
