Wanted by the FBI: The bank robber with a British accent


Police and federal agents are looking for a man who robbed a TCF Bank in St. Paul on Thursday, and is linked to a string of other robberies this month.

The FBI says the unknown suspect spoke with a "possible British accent" to a teller at the bank at 2163 Ford Parkway, pulling out a black pistol and demanding cash.

He then fled on foot after obtaining an undisclosed amount of money.

The Pioneer Press has dubbed him the "British bandit" and say a man of his description is suspected of robbing four gas stations in St. Paul and a TCF Bank in Minneapolis between Feb. 3 and Feb. 10.

In each of those cases, the newspaper notes, the suspect spoke with a British accent and wielded a gun, telling a cashier to "keep calm" and "hand over the money."

The FBI describes him as a white man in his 40s, who during the Thursday robbery wore a dark and light red striped winter cap, a gray jacket, a "neck gator" and blue jeans.

They say he should be considered armed and dangerous, and anyone with information about should contact the authorities, or email a tip via tips.fbi.gov.
