WEST COLUMBIA, SC/SUMMERVILLE, SC (WIS) - A man who robbed a West Columbia bank two weeks ago hit another South Carolina bank on Tuesday wearing the same clothes.

Summerville police say the man held up the First Citizens Bank on North Main Street Tuesday afternoon.

Surveillance photos show the suspect wearing a yellow-hued shirt, a green or brown hat with sunglasses resting on the hat, and blue pants.

Police said the man entered the bank around 1:50 p.m. and demanded money, but did not display a weapon. The suspect left with an undetermined amount of cash.

Police say he's the same man who robbed the BB&T Bank at 2404 Sunset Blvd. in West Columbia on January 15.

During that robbery, the suspect handed the teller a note demanding money. It is unknown if he left on foot or in a vehicle. The incident happened around 1:50 p.m.

Surveillance photos from that heist show the brazen robber sporting the same look.

The suspect, who has not been identified, is described as a white male aged between 30 and 40 years old, weighing approximately 250 pounds, and standing approximately 6'.

Police are asking that anyone with information concerning these robberies to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC
