The FBI said Sunday it believes the same man who robbed a Dimond Boulevard bank this weekend is also behind another bank robbery in February.

On Saturday, a man entered the 125 West Dimond Boulevard branch of Alaska USA Federal Credit Union and "presented a note demanding money," FBI assistant special agent in charge Kevin Donovan said Sunday.

He never showed a weapon or injured anyone inside the bank, but left with $2,078 in cash.

The FBI thinks the same unidentified man might be behind the Feb. 25 robbery of a Credit Union 1 branch at 1941 Abbott Road.

The suspect is described as an African-American man in his twenties, 5'7-5'11 with a thin to medium build, a thin moustache and a small amount of chin hair.

At the time of the robbery, he was wearing a black baseball cap with a dark brim, black leather coat with sewn-in hood, grey hooded sweatshirt, black gloves, faded, baggy jeans, black shoes and sunglasses.

Anyone with information about the robbery or identity of the suspect can contact the FBI at 276-4441 or the Anchorage Police Department at 786-8500.
