KENT POLICE PHOTO
Kent police have released a surveillance photo of a man who robbed the Home Street Bank branch at 505 W. Harrison St. at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.
The suspect is in his early to late 20s, 5-feet-7 with a thin build. He wore his long black hair in a ponytail. Some witnesses stated it appeared the suspect was wearing a wig. He was wearing dark sunglasses, a surgical mask, white long-sleeved shirt and black pants.
On May 15, King County Sheriff's Office responded to bank robbery in Covington that may have been the work of the same man. The suspect in that robbery was similar in appearance to the Kent bank robbery suspect.
The car used by the suspect in the May 15 robbery appears to be a 2003-2006 black Nissan Altima with chrome trim and rear spoiler.
