At around 3:30 Friday afternoon, a man attempted to rob the first federal bank on the corner of falls avenue and blue lakes.

Details are limited at this time, but it's believed he fled the scene on a bicycle after a failed attempt to rob the back.

Then a little after 4pm, Twin Falls police believe the same mad entered the Albertsons on Addison Avenue.

"Just after 4pm today we had a male individual walk into Albertsons and demanded money... we believe he may have been armed."

And now the TFPD is asking for your help in identifying the suspect.

"He's described as being a white male... he was wearing a green hat, a brown hoodie sweatshirt. He was wearing some sort of a wig possibly. And we believe he is the same individual that attempted to or possibly was going to try and rob First Federal Bank on Falls Avenue."

Officials have reason to believe there may have been another individual in the car as it sped away.

And now they are looking to the public in help of identifying the suspect.

"What we're asking is that is anybody may recognize anybody in the photo... or anybody that may have seen anything suspicious at either the First Federal branch on Falls Avenue or here at Albertsons that they contact the Twin Falls non emergency line at 735–4357."
