EVERETT — The man who robbed the Bank of America branch in the 1800 block of 112th Street SE on Saturday is the same person who robbed it last Wednesday, the FBI announced Tuesday.
About 12:50 p.m. Saturday, the robber demanded money. The note, written on a Bank of America deposit slip, implied he had a gun, but the man did not display one, FBI spokesman Ray Lauer said. The teller complied, and the robber fled south on foot with an undisclosed amount of money.
The robber followed the same pattern last week, when he entered the bank about 1 p.m.
Witnesses described the man as white, in his 30s, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, 150 pounds, gaunt, with reddish-blond hair in a ponytail. He appeared dirty and unkempt, and was wearing a light blue T-shirt, blue jeans, white tennis shoes and a blue ball cap.
Detectives ask anyone with information to call the Everett police tip line at 425-257-8450.
Michael John Beckwith, 41, was convicted of first-degree statutory rape in 1984. The victim was a 5-year-old girl whom Beckwith knew. In 1999, Beckwith was convicted of possessing pornography depicting a 12-year-old girl engaged in sexually explicit conduct. That victim was also known to him.
Beckwith is 5 feet 11 inches tall, 190 pounds, and has brown hair and hazel eyes.
He did complete sex offender treatment in prison.
The American Red Cross Whatcom County chapter assisted the men in finding a temporary place to stay, Snohomish County fire Investigator Ed Hardesty said Tuesday. The men were at home when the fire broke out Monday but escaped without injury.
Fire District 3 firefighters responded about 1:37 a.m. The cause has not been determined, Hardesty said.
He estimated the loss at $50,000 for the structure. The value of the destroyed contents was unknown.
