The man who held up a Seattle bank on Wednesday night also robbed a bank customer at gunpoint while she was with her young son, police said.

The man walked into the U.S. Bank branch at Northeast 87th Street and 35th Avenue Northeast just before 6 p.m. and pointed a handgun at a woman, who was in the bank with her 11-year-old son, police said. The man told the woman to hand over her wallet.

He then walked up to a bank teller and demanded money before fleeing the bank, according to police.

The man is suspected of several recent bank robberies in Seattle and Bellevue, police said.
