SEATTLE -- The FBI is looking for a man it's dubbed the "Roscoe Bandit" who is suspected of robbing two Seattle banks this week.

As previously reported, the suspect reportedly robbed a HomeStreet Bank in Capitol Hill on Monday. He is now suspected to have robbed a Wells Fargo in Belltown on Tuesday.

The FBI is calling him the Roscoe Bandit because of the long-barreled revolver he allegedly used in the robberies. Apparently, "roscoe" is an old-timey nickname for a firearm.

The FBI is hoping someone recognizes the suspect.
