ATLANTA — The FBI is requesting help from the public in identifying and locating an armed bank robber who continues to target Atlanta area banks.
The suspect sometimes wears a T-shirt with the logo of the comic book character “The Punisher,” like he did in the most recent robbery in Sandy Springs. The robber is described as a black male in his mid to late 30s, bald, medium build, with some facial hair, wearing a large/oversized black watch on his left wrist and carries a small zippered bag.
