MANHATTAN — This guy took "say it with flowers" to a whole new level.
A bouquet-bearing bandit ripped off an Upper West Side Bank last month and then struck again days later, police said.
Cops said that the suspect approached a teller at a Chase Bank, at 260 Columbus Ave., with a bouquet of flowers and a demand note about 2:50 p.m. on Feb. 23.
The teller complied, and the suspect fled, police said.
Then on March 5, about 10:55 a.m., the suspect entered a Banco Popular, at 90 W. 90th St., and handed a teller a note.
The suspect fled after the teller complied.
Police said the suspect is 35-40 years old, 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds. He was wearing a black skull cap, a black jacket and was clean shaven.
