OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) A suspect in the robbery of an Oklahoma City bank is believed to be the same person who robbed two Midwest City banks earlier this month.

The FBI says the latest holdup occurred yesterday at a Bank of Oklahoma branch on the city's northwest side. The suspect, a white man, entered the bank about 12:30 PM and gave a teller a threatening note.

Investigators say the suspect gathered up some money and left. He was last seen walking away from the bank.

The FBI says the same man is believed responsible for robberies at the Credit Union Service Center in Midwest City on August 10th and a Chase Bank branch in Midwest City on August 17th.

He's described as in his mid 20s with a goatee and short brown hair, between 5-foot-5 and 5-foot 10 inches tall and weighing between 140 and 160 pounds.
