Skeleton-Masked Robber Strikes Again In North Raleigh

Posted February 26, 2005

— Raleigh Police believe the so-called skeleton bandit has struck again. A masked man robbed a woman at the State Employees Credit Union off Creedmoor Road late Friday night.

A woman reports a man wearing a skeleton mask approached her as she was getting money from the ATM machine. She says the man was armed, but she was not hurt during the robbery. It is not clear how much money was stolen.

Since Feb. 14, there have been five ATM robberies in the north Raleigh area, and each time, the suspect has been described as a man wearing a skeleton mask. Two of the robberies took place on Capital Boulevard, one occurred on Six Forks Road, and one was reported in the Wakefield area.

More than a dozen Raleigh police officers are working on the case. Police say the latest robbery puts them one step closer to finding the suspect. A K-9 unit traced the suspect's footprints to a nearby apartment complex. However, the suspect was not found at the complex.

Anyone with information is asked to call Raleigh police.
