FBI officials are asking for help in identifying a man who allegedly robbed two banks while wearing a helmet.
The man, who has been dubbed the “Helmet Head Bandit,” is linked to an attempted robbery in Tujunga Wednesday, a successful robbery at a Chase Bank in Tujunga on Aug. 16 and another on Aug. 20 in La Cañada Flintridge, FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller said.
He allegedly tells tellers he has a weapon and in at least one incident, a witness described seeing the barrel of a gun sticking out of the man’s backpack, Eimiller said.
He then leaves on a motorcycle. Officials did not have description of the motorcycle.
Anyone with information about the suspect can send tips to 310-477-6565.
