AUSTIN (KXAN) — Austin Police are looking for a suspect accused of robbing the same east Austin bank twice over the span of three months, according to an APD release.
APD said the estimated 16 to 22-year-old went to an A+ Federal Credit Union location on U.S. Highway 290, demanded cash and threatened a bank teller on June 21 at 12:20 p.m. and Sept. 28 at 3:20 p.m.
The suspect was described by police as a thin Black man, around 5’4” to 5’6” tall with long dreadlocks or twists that went past his nose.
Police said he left with an undisclosed amount of money. It’s unclear if he was in a vehicle or had a weapon. At this time, police believe there is only one suspect.
On Sept. 28, he was seen wearing a gray hoodie, gray pants, white Texas Longhorns visor, red shoes, and a black backpack, police said.
On June 21, APD said he was seen wearing gray cargo-style pants that could be sweat pants, a black or very dark-colored hoodie with a front pocket pouch, solid red hat, purple and pink marbling/swirl design facemask, white tennis shoes, and a dark backpack.
