SEATTLE - Law enforcement authorities are looking for information on a Washington state bank robber the FBI calls "The Man in the Rubber Mask."

FBI spokeswoman Ayn Sandalo Dietrich says the masked bandit is believed to have robbed at least four Seattle banks since mid-October, most recently a Key Bank branch in the Ravenna neighborhood last Friday.

The man is thought to be in his late 50s and about 5 feet 5 inches tall. For each robbery, he's worn a different Halloween-type costume mask, with gloves, a baseball cap, a hooded sweatshirt or jacket and jeans. The robber carries a handgun and most recently aimed a laser on the gun at bank employees.

He's considered armed and dangerous.
