A robber who looks suspiciously similar to the man who held up the North Bend Sterling Savings last week struck at a bank in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood Monday afternoon, Nov. 9.

The hold-up, under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, happened just before closing time at Ballard's Frontier Bank.

Security images obtained by the FBI show a man with similar build, slouch and hair to the man who robbed the North Bend bank on Friday afternoon, Nov. 11.

That robber was described as being in his 50s or 60s, of medium build with gray hair. He also had bandages or tape on fingers of both hands.

The North Bend robber disappeared after walking out of the Sterling Savings branch with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was shown.

If you have information about the robbery, call (206) 622-0460.
