The FBI, along with police in High Point, Asheboro, Lexington and Huntersville, are asking the public’s help to find a serial bank robber dubbed the “Striped-Hoodie Bandit.”
Authorities believe the man is responsible for robbing three banks and one convenience store in North Carolina.
In each robbery, the man had a black revolver and wore the same clothing — blue jeans, a white T-shirt, a gray and white striped-hoodie jacket, a camouflage ball cap and dark tennis shoes.
The man is white, about 6 feet tall with a slender build. He was wearing glasses and appeared to have a bandage of some sort on the left side of his neck. It is unknown if the bandage is covering an identifying mark like a tattoo or if the man was wounded.
