SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -- Police are looking for a man who they say robbed a bank and may be responsible in four other robberies in the area; all in one day.

A short time after 2:00pm, a man entered the Key Bank, located at the 8400 block of Winton Road. The man then handed the teller a note demanding cash and implying that he had a gun. The suspect fled on foot in an unknown direction with an undetermined amount of cash.

The man is described as a black male, dark complexion who stands at 6 feet 2 inches. He weighs between 180-200 pounds with a wide nose at the base and a lot of acne scaring on his cheeks and next to his nose. The suspect was wearing  a brown hooded jacket with a decorative design on the front, sunglasses, black shoes and pants.

Police from three different agencies believe he has robbed for other local businesses. The Franklin Savings Bank on West Kemper Road in Forest Park, the Key Bank and CVS Pharmacy in Springdale, and the 5/3 bank in Kroger on State Route 4 in Woodlawn were all robbed with the suspect passing a note demanding money.

Luckily, no one was injured in any of the robberies.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 513-352-3040.
