Police are looking for a suspect who allegedly robbed multiple banks across three precincts and two boroughs.
The suspect first hit a Williamsburg bank on Monday, Jan. 13. He entered Popular Bank, located at 15 Graham Ave., at 9:30 a.m. and passed a note to the teller demanding money.
The teller complied and handed over about $2,000. The man fled northbound on Graham Avenue, police said.
He struck again on Thursday, Jan. 23 — this time in Ridgewood. He entered another Popular Bank location at 918 Seneca Ave. at 2:30 p.m. He again passed a note to the teller demanding money and the teller gave him approximately $500, police said. He fled westbound on Myrtle Avenue with the cash.
Days later, the man hit a third bank in Bushwick on Monday, Jan. 27. He entered a Bank of America, located at 386 Knickerbocker Ave., around 2:35 p.m. and passed a note to the teller demanding money. The teller refused to hand over any cash and the man fled the bank in an unknown direction, police said.
