Marc Giauque, KSL Newsradio Investigators hope the public can help identify a man who robbed a bank earlier this week. They released images from the bank's surveillance video today and say he may also be linked to two other robberies.

Detectives say a man entered the Zions bank at 4600 South and Highland Drive at 5:45 Monday evening, displayed a large, black semiautomatic handgun, and demanded money from a teller. He then herded the employees into a small room and fled.

Four employees and no customers were inside the bank at the time of the robbery.

Though no one has been hurt in any of the robberies he is linked to, FBI agents are concerned about the robber's aggressive and threatening nature. "Simply because of how easily he uses a firearm. He points it at individuals. He waves the gun in people's faces, and then he's being very aggressive in the way he treats bank employees inside the bank," explained FBI Special Agent Juan Becerra.

The suspect is described as a male, 25-35 years old, 6 feet tall, 160 pounds, with a thin build. He was wearing light brown shoes, blue jeans, a dark hoodie sweatshirt, black gloves, and a bandanna over the face.

It's believed he was in the bank for about 90 seconds.

Detectives are asking that anyone having information about this bank robbery and/or suspect please call the Salt Lake County Sheriff's Office at 743-7000.
