[UPDATED with Arrest of Joseph William Kipp:] Who Would Win in a Staring Contest: the "Stare Down Bandit" or the "No Band Bandit"?
He is Joseph William Kipp, 52, of Anaheim.
Kipp is accused of robbing US Bank branches in Hacienda Heights and Santa Ana, showing a teller a gun in the latter job, according to FBI spokeswoman Laura Eimiller.
ORIGINAL POST, OCT. 6, 3:21 P.M.:
Those are the nicknames of two bank robbers that have hit tellers in Orange County and elsewhere.
And now, the tale of the tape:

SDB apparently struck out trying to rob a US Bank in Huntington Beach Monday, but on the same day he struck a Bank of America in Irvine and left with an undisclosed amount of cash. In both cases, he presented a note and made verbal demands for cash and fled on foot. He was not seen getting into any vehicle in the area of each heist.
In the Santa Ana job, which was two months ago, NBB showed a bank employee a weapon in his waistband before he was handed cash. But in Wednesday's Hacienda Heights robbery, the teller saw no weapon.
Anyone with information on either of these fellows is asked to contact the FBI at 888.226.8443.
