FBI needs your help snaring ‘Cyborg Bandit’
OK, it is Halloween, but this guy isn’t trick-or-treating. At least not in the normal sense.
The FBI has dubbed this bank robber the “Cyborg Bandit” for obvious reasons.
They say he has robbed at least four different banks in the past two months, most recently in Bothell on Oct. 23. He’s also hit banks in Woodinville, Shoreline and Bellevue.
He’s described as white, between 5-feet-9 and 6 feet tall, with a thin build. Despite the getup, there’s nothing bionic about him.
During the robberies, the FBI says he’s covered his face with a distinctive cloth and worn the hood of his sweatshirt over his head. He has also worn clear latex gloves.
Anyone with information on Cyborg is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477). Callers may remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $,1000, according to the FBI.
