DENVER (AP) - Authorities are looking for a man who they say has robbed three Denver banks while lugging an oxygen tank and wearing a surgical mask.

The man's appearance has prompted authorities to dub him "The O2 Bandit." Denver police and the FBI's Rocky Mountain Safe Streets Task Force said Tuesday the man is suspected of robbing three banks in December.

Authorities say the suspect enters the banks, gives someone a note demanding money, and leaves.

Authorities say the suspect is black, 50 to 60 years old, has a medium build, and is between 5 feet 8 inches and 6 feet tall.
