BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — Police are searching for a man they say held up two banks in Bedford-Stuyvesant on Tuesday morning.
The robber first targeted a Bank of America at 880 Quincy St., near Ralph Avenue, around 9:15 a.m., slipping a note to the teller and demanding money.
The worker refused to hand over cash, police said, and the man fled.
About 15 minutes later, the suspect hit the Chase Bank at 975 Bedford Ave., near DeKalb Avenue, also demanding cash with a note handed to the employee.
He made off with an undetermined amount of money, according to police, and fled northbound on Bedford.
Police describe the suspect as between 45 to 55 years old and 5-foot-6 with a salt-and-pepper beard. He was last seen wearing a light blue knit cap, black leather jacket, black sweater and white shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stopper’s Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS.
