MANHATTAN — The NYPD is searching for a serial robber who targeted at least four banks across the city.
The suspect, who was seen wearing a blue jumpsuit and bandages across his nose and cheeks in at least two of the robberies, hit four banks between November and January — each time demanding cash from the teller and running off with an undetermined amount of money, according to authorities.
Police released a video on Tuesday of the man running in his jumpsuit.
The man struck the Chase bank at 611 Sixth Avenue twice, once at about 11:45 a.m. on Nov. 24, and again at 9:35 a.m. on Jan. 12, police said.
Then the same suspect robbed three different banks on Jan. 22, beginning with the Wilshire Bank at 308 Fifth Ave. at about 1:10 p.m., according to authorities.
In this case, he left the bank empty-handed because the teller did not speak English well and couldn't understand what the thief was saying, according to Wilshire spokeswoman Hyun Park.
"Fortunately for us there wasn't much incident," she said.
Later that afternoon, the man hit a Chase bank at 941 Lexington Ave. near East 69th Street at roughly 3 p.m., and then robbed an HSBC bank a few blocks away, at 1165 Third Ave. near East 68th Street, only a few minutes later, police said.
He fled with cash in both incidents, and there were no injuries in any of the robberies, authorities said.
HSBC and Chase banks did not immediately return calls for comment on Monday.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS.
