GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The FBI is searching for a suspect who robbed a Chase Bank in Glendale on Wednesday.

The suspect entered the bank near Northern and 59th avenues at approximately 5:30 p.m. and went to the check-writing station where he filled out a demand note that stated he was there to rob the bank.

The suspect approached a teller who was behind a barrier glass and handed over the note. He was given a known quantity of cash and fled the bank on foot in an unknown direction.

Authorities believe the suspect is also responsible for an Oct. 16 robbery at the Chase Bank near Thunderbird Road and 83rd Avenue in Peoria.

The suspect is described as a white male in his mid-40s, 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall, 170 to 180 pounds with a slim build, unshaven facial hair with a slight goatee, blue eyes and a tan complexion. He was wearing a camouflage fishing hat, black long-sleeve shirt, blue jeans and black tennis shoes at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the FBI at 623-466-1999.
