Investigators suspect the same man is responsible for a series of half a dozen bank robberies in the eastern Twin Cities dating back to last summer.

The FBI's Minneapolis office and St. Paul police described the man as an Asian male in his late 20s or early 30s who stands 5 feet 2 inches tall with a slim build, weighing 130 to 150 pounds, the Star Tribune reports.

WCCO says the man is suspected of robbing three different banks in St. Paul, including two that were robbed twice. Those were a TCF Bank on Suburban Ave. and a Bremer Bank on Snelling Ave. The string started last August at a TCF on Lexington Ave.

Most recently he's suspected of attempting to rob Lake Area Bank in Oak Park Heights, the Star Tribune says.

FBI spokesman Kyle Loven says the robber has used the same technique in each case, giving the teller a demand note and threatening to use violence or a weapon.

Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to call the FBI at 763-569-8000 or the St. Paul Police Department at 651-266-5650.
