Police believe a bandit robbed the same downtown San Francisco bank twice earlier this month.

The most recent heist at the Wells Fargo branch at Mission and Spear streets occurred about 10 a.m. Friday, according to police. A man reportedly "waltzed into the bank" and asked for quarter wrappers. He then demanded that the teller hand over all the $50 and $100 bills.

The suspect threatened to kill everyone in the bank if any alarms were activated, police said. He reportedly fled with a large amount of cash.

Ten days earlier, police said, a suspect who appeared to be the same man approached a teller at the same branch wearing a dark hat and sunglasses. He put his hand in his pocket and pointed it at the teller, simulating a gun, police said.

The suspect then demanded 50 $100 bills and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police have secured video surveillance footage from the bank, but have yet to announce an arrest.
