FBI detectives are looking for a serial bank robber who struck again -- this time in Linthicum over the weekend. 

"He's just fitting in. I think that's why he's a little bit brazen because he's not wearing anything covering his face," FBI special agent Steve Skinner said. 

Skinner called it a bold move the robber has tried time and time over. 

"He's handing over a note and the note is a demand note and it says that he's armed and dangerous and he's demanding money," he said. 

Saturday's robbery at a Wells Fargo in Linthicum makes six since the middle of October.

Skinner wants people to get a good look at the man's face, so they can spot him as soon as they see him.

"I come here every day. We have a business account here so I come with a lot of cash every day. It's just shocking to hear that it got robbed," one bank customer said. 

Bank customers said they're rattled by the news.

"I never really think about it during the day, but I do come to it at night a lot. So that does worry me now," another customer said.

It's a worry Skinner says he's trying to take away. 

"Well that's the importance of the surveillance photos and that's why we're trying to get ahead," Skinner said. 

It's a step to try to prevent another robbery and keep bank customers safe. 

"It's not that it's frustrating. We just don't want anyone to get hurt and if a person doesn't display a weapon in a bank, there's always a chance that something can go wrong," he said. 

The FBI considers this man to be armed and dangerous. There's a $5,000 reward for information leading to his arrest.
