The elderly bank robber known as the "Geezer Bandit" struck another California bank, according to the FBI.

Federal agents said the suspect robbed a bank in Morro Bay in San Luis Obispo County Friday afternoon. Authorities said the robber pointed a revolver at two tellers at a Heritage Oaks Bank branch, threatened them and demanded money. The suspect left with an undisclosed amount.

The "Geezer Bandit" is believed to be responsible for 13 other bank robberies since 2009.

He is described as Caucasian, between 60 and 70 years old, about 190 pounds and approximately 6-feet tall.

The FBI has considered that the man's elderly features could be a disguise, after some witness reports that he was wearing a mask.

A $20,000 reward is being offered for information leading to an arrest and conviction in this case.

Anyone with information is urged to call FBI at (858) 565-1255.
