CHICAGO (AP) - The FBI is asking for help identifying a suspect they’ve dubbed the “Pinball Bandit” because of the frequency and locations of the banks they say he’s robbed.

Michael J. Anderson is special agent-in-charge of the Chicago FBI. In a Friday news release, he says authorities believe the suspect carried out five robberies at four Chicago banks between Jan. 13 and Jan. 25.

Two of the robberies occurred on the same day, just more than one hour apart.

Anderson says the suspect approaches a bank employee and makes “a threatening demand” for money. He says there have been no physical injuries reported but the suspect is considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Chicago FBI office or local police.
