MANHATTAN — Police are hunting a man who robbed one East Side bank and tried to hold up another.
The casually dressed suspect, pictured wearing a tan baseball cap, black sunglasses and an Atlantic City T-shirt, entered the Chase Bank at 2 Park Avenue, between East 32nd and East 33rd Streets, last Friday and passed the teller a note demanding cash, according to police.
The attempted heist, which happened about 2:15 p.m., didn't pan out. The suspect fled the Murray Hill location empty-handed, cops said.
Building manager Jose Toro told DNAinfo that surveillance cameras watch the bank, but a UPS truck parked in front of the building blocked the view.
The man struck again the following morning, walking into the TD Bank at 47 Third Ave., between East 10th and East 11th Streets, and ordering the teller to turn over the money, according to the NYPD.
This time the bank worker complied and the suspect escaped with an unknown amount of cash at about 9:55 a.m, the department said.
Anyone with information about these incidents is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1 (800) 577-TIPS (8477).
The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) and then entering TIP577.
