Police believe a serial robber dubbed the Beacon Hill Bandit has struck again.
The most recent incident happened on Oct. 10 at the TD Bank on Little River Turnpike in Annandale. Police say around 4:30 p.m., the suspect walked into the bank and passed a note demanding money. The teller was unable to give him cash so he fled in an older model Jeep Cherokee.
On Oct. 4, police say the same suspect walked into the TD Bank on Richmond Highway in Mount Vernon and demanded money. He got away with an undisclosed amount of cash.
Police say the same man robbed the TD Bank on Richmond Highway in Alexandria in early September. He is believed to have robbed that same bank four times between March 2010 and July 2013.
In each robbery, the Beacon Hill Bandit has either verbally demanded money or passed a note and provided a bag to the teller. On three occasions, he said he had a weapon.
The suspect is described as a tall, muscular black man in his thirties or forties. During each robbery, he wore sunglasses with square frames. He disguised himself as a construction worker twice. In July, he wore a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles hat.
The FBI is offering a reward of up to $5,000 for information that leads to the suspect's arrest and conviction.
