Police believe the same man robbed two Denver banks a few blocks apart within four hours on Monday.

At 11 a.m., the man robbed a Wells Fargo Bank at 400 S. Colorado Blvd., according to the Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force, which includes the FBI, Denver Police Department and other local police agencies.

The robber is described as a black man who is about 5-feet-8-inches tall with a muscular build and a goatee. He appeared to be wearing a black wig along under a black baseball cap with a white star -- possibly a Houston Astros cap. During the Wells Fargo robbery, he also wore a gray T-shirt with a "Superbowl 38" logo, dark pants and sunglasses.  

At 3 p.m., investigators the robber hit a U.S. Bank -- about four blocks north -- at 730 N. Colorado Blvd. In that robbery, the suspect wore a white tank top, which possibly had a Denver Nuggets basketball team logo, and dark pants.

Authorities say anyone who has information about the suspect or these crimes can anonymously call Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-7867. You can also text to: 274637 (CRIMES) then title DMCS and enter your message.

A reward of up to $2,000 is available for information leading to the arrest and charging of the individual responsible for this crime.
