The Salt Lake City Police Department is seeking the public's help to identify a man suspected of robbing a Zions Bank branch location, potentially his second bank robbery in two days.

At approximately 12:31 p.m. on Friday, the man walked into the Zions Bank branch at 701 E. 400 South and demanded money from a teller.

Suspect description:

· Male, possibly Hispanic

· 5 feet 6 inches tall

· Very thin

· "Very weathered looking face," according to witness

· Wearing a light-blue sweatshirt, light-blue jeans, knit hat with brim (darker color)

· Last seen leaving northbound through Residence Inn parking lot

Surveillance photos show a striking resemblance between the suspect and a man who walked into Brighton Bank, 1420 S. 300 West, Thursday morning and demanded cash. Detectives have yet to identify the man in either case.

The Police Department asks anyone who may know the identity or location of the suspects to call (801) 799-3000. Anonymous tips may be sent by texting the keyword TIPSLCPD plus any relevant information to CRIMES 274637. Reference: case #13-196165.
