Salt Lake City and Unified police are working together to catch, possibly, the same bank robber.

About 9:25 a.m. Monday, a man walked up to the US Bank inside the Smith's at 922 E. 2100 South and demanded money from the teller, according to Salt Lake City police. He then left with an unknown amount of cash.

Then, at 10:14 a.m., a man with a similar description robbed a Chase Bank branch at 1306 E. Woodland Ave. (about 3200 South).

Unified Police released images captured from a video security camera in hopes the public may help them bring the bank robber to justice.

UPD Lt. Justin Hoyal said the suspect — described as a 5-foot-8, 200-pound white male, wearing a gray T-shirt with black stripes, light blue jeans, sun glasses and a fake beard — approached a teller with a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash. He was last seen fleeing on foot, eastbound on Woodland Avenue.

Hoyal said the robber did not display any weapons and no one was hurt during the holdup.

The police are working together to determine if the same man robbed both locations. Anyone with information on this case is asked to contact the Unified Police Department at 385-468-9816 or Salt Lake City police at 801-799-3000.
