MANHATTAN — A man in a New York Yankees baseball cap robbed two Third Avenue banks in broad daylight, just days apart from each other, according to the NYPD.

The suspect first walked into a Santander Bank at 1062 Third Ave. and slipped a teller a demand note at 11:03 a.m. March 9, police said. He fled west on 63rd Street toward Lexington Avenue with an undetermined amount of cash.

He struck again on Monday, entering the Chase Bank at 450 Third Ave. at East 31st Street, where he again passed a note demanding money at about 1:10 p.m., according to authorities. He managed to escape with an unspecified amount of money, they added. 

Police describe the man as roughly 40 years old, standing 6 feet tall and weighing 200 pounds with a medium build. He was clean shaven with light eyes, and was last seen wearing a black puffy jacket, black jeans and a black baseball cap.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477).
