Police say he’s hit the same bank twice and robbed at least one other bank since May. Now they want your help identifying him.

Delaware State Police released a surveillance camera image of the offender wearing a blue baseball cap backwards and sunglasses.

The man pictured is suspected of robbing the Artisans Bank on Silverside Rd. in Wilmington on May 14. He’s also believed to have robbed the same bank on June 8. In the latest incident, which occurred Friday, police say he’s also the suspect of the robbery at the WSFS bank branch at 2005 Concord Pike.

In every instance, the perpetrator held a gun at the teller and demanded money from the cash drawer. The tellers of each bank complied with his orders; he then fled in an unknown direction with an undisclosed amount of cash. No one was injured in any of the robberies.

Police describe the robber as a 25 to 35 year old male, between 5’10” and 6′ tall with a medium build. 

Anyone with information about the suspect’s identity is asked to call Detective J. Paul Doherty at State Police Troop 2 at 302-365-8438. Anonymous tips can be left on the CrimeStoppers Hotline at 1-800-TIP-3333 or online at www.tipsubmit.com. Tips can also be texted to 274637 (CRIMES) using the keyword “DSP.”
