MANHATTAN — Police are hunting a man they say robbed a Manhattan bank and then unsuccessfully tried to hold up two others.
The man made off with $6,000 after handing a teller a note at the Chase Bank on Barclay Street on Jan. 25 at about 11 a.m., police said.
He then passed a note to a teller at a Bank of America on Third Avenue and East 63rd Street on Feb. 18 at about 11:10 a.m. but fled without any cash, according to the NYPD.
Undeterred, he tried again just a few hours later, handing a note to a Chase Bank teller on West 4th Street and Washington Place at about 3:50 p.m., police said.
Again, he fled without any money.
He is described as 35 to 45 years old, about 5-feet-9-inches tall with a thin build.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
