Police asked for help Monday to identify a serial bank robber who has hit three banks this month.
On Monday, authorities released photographs of the suspect taken by bank surveillance cameras in hopes that someone would recognize the bandit, who threatened to kill a teller in his last holdup.
Detectives believe the same suspect robbed BBVA Compass Bank, 5701 Camp Bowie Blvd., on Oct. 3; Southwest Bank, 2601 Hulen St., on Oct. 17; and BBVA Compass Bank, 8875 Camp Bowie Blvd., on Friday.
In each robbery, the man walked into the bank, presented a note to a teller and stated that he had a weapon, but a gun was never displayed. He escaped each holdup on foot.

In Friday’s holdup at BBVA Compass Bank, detectives said the robber became “more aggressive” as he reached to his waist and threatened to kill the teller if the teller didn’t comply.
Witnesses described the suspect as a white man, in his mid-30s, about 6-foot-3 to 6-foot-5 and weighing about 180 to 200 pounds. He has worn a white T-shirt with bluejeans.
In the Oct. 3 robbery, the bandit appeared to be wearing prescription glasses; he wore sunglasses in the last two bank holdups.
