ASTORIA — Police are looking for a suspect wanted for a string of bank robberies in Queens.

The man has struck three banks since October, according to the NYPD, each time handing the bank teller a note demanding cash. He made off with money in two of the incidents, police said.

On Oct. 25, the suspect entered a Flushing Savings Bank in Auburndale and took off with an undetermined amount of cash, according to police.

He used the same note-passing tactic again on Nov. 25, first at a Chase Bank in Sunnyside, where he fled without any money. An hour later that same day, he entered another Chase Bank on 30th Avenue in Astoria and made off with about $3,000 in cash, police said. No injuries were reported.

The suspect was captured on surveillance footage and was last seen wearing a black ski cap, black jacket, eyeglasses and carrying a black backpack, according to the NYPD.
