He then struck two days later on July 27 about 12:05 p.m. at a Northfield Bank at 283 Kings Highway in Brooklyn, again fleeing with an unspecified amount of money, police said.

Finally, two days after that on July 29 about 10 a.m., he hit a Citibank at 1871 Nostrand Ave. in Brooklyn, where he left without getting any money.
