(CBS Seattle) — The man known as the “Where’s Waldo Bandit” is accused of robbing a bank less than a week after being released from federal prison.

The Oregonian reports 32-year-old Ryan Michael Homsley has been named a suspect in a U.S. Bank robbery that took place Monday in downtown Portland.

Branch employees claim a man matching Homsley’s description used a demand note to rob the bank of an undisclosed amount of cash, according to The Oregonian. The suspect then ran off towards the Portland State University campus where he successfully eluded responding police officers.

Homsley, known for sporting a “nerdy” appearance — equipped with glasses, striped shirt and bowl-cut hairdo — was convicted of bank robbery in federal court last year for his involvement in a 2010 robbery at a Key Bank branch roughly 15 miles south of Portland. In June 2012, he was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison.

Homsley is described as five feet, nine inches tall, weighing 156 pounds, with dark-colored hair parted on one side, glasses, slight facial hair growth, dark-colored sports coat over a white shirt and dark-colored pants.

Both the Portland Police Department and the FBI say Homsley is considered dangerous and should not be approached.
