The FBI is investigating 3 separate robberies that occurred at banks in Phoenix the last few days.

Monday afternoon, a white male entered the Bank of America at 2501 W. Happy Valley Road. He told the victim teller to put the money in his blue and black drawstring Nike bag and also told her he needed "the straps." The robber then fled the bank southbound.

He is described as a white male, late 30s to 40s, 6'2", 170 lbs., with mud on his face, wearing a floppy camouflage hat, large black sunglasses, blue T-shirt and blue jeans with grass stains on the knees.

Tuesday about 4:30 p.m., a while male entered the Arizona Federal Credit Union at 2650 W. Ross Avenue. He contacted an employee and inquired about opening an account. He said he had to go to his car to get the appropriate documents and returned with a folder. Inside the folder was a demand note.

The victim took the suspect to the teller counter and gave him U.S. currency and he fled the bank on foot.

He is described as a white male in his mid-20s, 5'10" to 6' tall, 175 lbs., light complexion, brown goatee, short brown hair, wearing a blue T-shirt with an unknown yellow logo on the front, a black long sleeve T-shirt underneath and black sunglasses on his head.

Wednesday morning, a black male entered the National Bank of Arizona located at 20428 N. 27th Avenue.

He entered the bank and approached the teller counter, and in a quiet voice demanded money and pointed a small black semi-automatic pistol at the teller. The teller gave him cash and he fled the bank into the apartment complex just northwest of the bank.

The suspect is described as a black male in his mid-20s, 6'9" to 5'10" tall, 180 lbs., shoulder length black hair possibly in braids, wearing a blue and gray baseball hat with "B" on the front, black doorag under the hat, black long sleeve shirt with left chest pocket, black nylon runners pants, and blue and white tennis shoes.
