SAN FRANCISCO (BCN)--Police have released photos of three men involved in two separate  bank robbery series in San Francisco in the past few weeks, and are asking  for the public's help in identifying them.
     
The first suspect is wanted in connection with a string of  robberies that started with a robbery at a bank in the 300 block of Clay  Street in the Financial District at about 11:30 a.m. on April 30.
     
That man is also believed to be responsible for several other San  Francisco bank robberies, as well as one at the Bon Air Shopping Center in  Greenbrae on May 14. He is described as a white man between 40 and 50 years  old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing 160 to 170 pounds, police said.
     
He was last seen wearing a sun hat with a wide brim and a black  hooded sweatshirt. He typically hands the bank teller a note demanding money,  and pulled out a handgun during one robbery, according to police.
     
In one of the robberies, he was assisted by a second man. That  robbery happened around 3:15 p.m. on May 12 near Chestnut and Fillmore  streets in the Marina District, police said.
     
The second suspect is believed to be missing three fingers from  his right hand and two from his left hand. He is described white, between 45  and 50 years old, roughly 5 feet 5 inches tall and 165 pounds. During the May  12 robbery, he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark-colored jacket,  police said.
     
In an unrelated bank robbery series, investigators are looking for  a black man in his 40s who has robbed several downtown banks. He is about 5  feet 9 inches tall and weighs between 160 and 180 pounds, and was last seen  wearing a black, curly wig and eyeglasses, police said.
     
The first robbery in that series occurred in the block of Front  Street at about 10 a.m. on May 10, according to police.
     
Anyone with information about any of the suspects is encouraged to  call the Police Department's anonymous tip line at (415) 575-4444 or send a  tip by text message to TIP411 with "SFPD" in the subject line.
