During the four robberies, the suspect entered the banks displaying a black handgun, threatened the tellers, and demanded money. In two of the robberies, he fled in a stolen vehicle that was recovered later. It is not known whether a second person was in the getaway car. The robberies occurred in the Allston and Brighton sections of Boston, in Brookline, and in Braintree.

The robber is described as a man in his mid- to late 30s, about 5 -feet-11 with a medium build. During the robberies he wore a dark jacket, dark pants, black or white gloves, a scarf or a ski mask covering his face, and a knit hat. He has skin tags or moles underneath his eyes.

The robberies are being investigated by multiple law enforcement agencies including the FBI and Boston, Brookline, Braintree, and State Police.

The suspect is considered armed and dangerous by the FBI, and anyone with information is encouraged to call its Boston office at 617-742-5533.
