The FBI San Francisco office offered a $10,000 reward Friday for information leading to the arrest of a serial bank robber.

Agents said the man has robbed at least four banks in San Francisco between July and September 2008.

The suspect is an African-American male who appears to be in his mid-30s, approximately six feet tall, weighing 280 to 300 pounds.

Agents said serial bank robbers usually get more audacious in their attempts until they are eventually captured. Agents warned that suspects often get more violent as they continue their efforts.

Serial robbers generally continue committing robberies—often with increasing audacity and violence—until captured.
 
In each instance, this particular robber wore a black jacket with a front zipper and a baseball cap.
 
This man is suspected of robbing the following banks:
 

  • July 31, 2008 - Wells Fargo, 1560 Van Ness Avenue, San Francisco
  • September 2, 2008 - US Bank, 2601 Mission Street, San Francisco
  • September 4, 2008 - Washington Mutual, 2750 Mission Street, San Francisco
  • September 5, 2008 - Bank of America, 2835 Geary Boulevard, San Francisco

 
Anyone with information about any of these robberies is encouraged to contact the FBI at 415-553-7400, or the San Francisco Police Department Robbery Bureau, Detective Phillip Wong at 415-553-9208.
