QUEEN CREEK, Ariz. -

The FBI is looking for a man who robbed the same Bank of America location twice in four months.

The "Off-Road Robber" struck the first time on September 13, 2012 -- the second on January 19, 2013.

On Jan. 19, the suspect walked into the Bank of America located at 21004 E. Ocotillo Road and approached the teller. He put two manila envelopes on the counter and passed a demand note to the teller, which stated he was armed. 

A second employee approached the suspect from behind, to which the suspect turned around and displayed a handgun in his waistband.

The teller gave the suspect cash and he fled the bank on a motorcycle.

The FBI believes he is responsible for a robbery at the same location on Sept. 13. The M.O. and suspect description are the same. In that case, the suspect was wearing a yellow and black motorcycle helmet.

He's described as a white male, 30 to 40 years old, 6' to 6'1", 200 lbs., possible brown eyes, slender build, wearing a black motorcycle helmet with a mirrored face screen, black hooded sweatshirt, black and white gloves, and blue jeans.

FBI: 623-466-1999
