The first robbery occurred just before 5 p.m. on Feb. 29 at a Citibank at 401 E. Arrow Highway in Glendora, according to a news release from the Glendora Police Department.

The robber entered the bank and handed a teller a demand note stating he had a gun, but no weapon was seen, the release said. The teller handed him an undisclosed amount of money and he left.

Several days later on March 4, the same man entered a Citibank at 1300 N. Kraemer Blvd. in Placentia and handed a teller a similar note that stated he had a gun, according to the release. The man again left the bank with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Later the same day, the robber entered a third Citibank at 100 S. First Ave. in Arcadia.

Once again he handed the teller a note stating he had a gun. But in this case, the teller feared for his life and went to the back of the bank, the release stated.

The suspect left the bank without any cash.

No vehicles were seen in any of the robberies.

The suspect is described as white, around 25 years old, standing 5 foot 10 inches tall and weighing 130 pounds. He has green eyes and a scar on his right eyelid.
