MILWAUKEE- Milwaukee Police say a serial bank robber may have hit five banks in the area.

The robberies date back to May 29 starting with the Tri City Bank at 3378 South 27th Street.

In each case, the suspect gives a note to a teller demanding money and implying he has a gun.

Police say he's never actually showed a gun.

He then calmly walks out of the bank with the cash.

So far, a getaway driver has not been identified, but authorities are not ruling out that the suspect has an accomplice.

Another case shows him wearing a women's wig with a winter hat.
