Tucson police are asking the public for help in finding a man who robbed the Bank of America, 6285 E. Broadway, on Monday afternoon.

The man also is believed to have attempted to rob another Bank of America branch at 2885 N. Campbell Ave. earlier on Monday, said Sgt. Chris Widmer, a Tucson Police Department spokesman. Widmer gave the following account:

In the first robbery, the robber wore a wig and makeup or a mask, an AC/DC shirt and black pants. He handed a bag to a teller and demanded money. The teller, who was behind a bulletproof shield, refused, and the man left.

In the second bank, the robber was dressed in a purple shirt, black dress pants, black dress shoes and a golfer's cap. He carried a black suitcase, had a cane and walked with a limp. He is believed to have been wearing makeup, or may have had on a mask. He ordered a teller to fill a bag, and he left with an undisclosed amount of money.

No one was injured in either incident.

The man, seen on surveillance video, was described as about 6 feet 3 inches tall with a medium build. He was bald with possible burn scars on his cheeks. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
