The FBI was looking Tuesday for a man who robbed a First National Bank Alaska branch on Muldoon Road at gunpoint on Monday  — and they believe he robbed the same bank Dec. 27.

The recent robbery happened just before 5:30 p.m. Monday. The suspect walked in "with his gun drawn, pointed it at a teller and demanded cash," the FBI said in a statement. He then walked out.

The man was dressed almost all in black — pants, jacket, hat and shoes, but with a green scarf covering his face. In the earlier robbery of the same branch, the suspect was dressed the same, except with a blue scarf, said Staci Feger-Pellessier, spokeswoman for the FBI in Anchorage.

Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI at 907-276-4441.
