SAN JOSE, Calif. — Police are asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in the robbery of five banks in San Jose and Milpitas over the past eight weeks.
The most recent robbery happened at 2:22 p.m. Monday at a Comerica Bank in Milpitas, according to police.
San Jose police on Tuesday released several images of the robber who appears to be a woman wearing different wigs in the string of robberies — three in Milpitas and two in San Jose. But police said the robber could be a man dressed as a woman.
In each case, the robber enters the bank, hands a teller a demand note and either makes threats or brandishes a handgun, police said. The robber has made off with an undisclosed amount of money.
The robber is becoming progressively more brazen and should be considered armed and dangerous, police said.
