Police are looking for a man who hit two banks in Queens Tuesday, leaving empty handed from a Woodside bank but with more than $17,000 from a Jamaica bank.

Both incidents happened within the space of two hours yesterday, with the thief first entering the Woodside Chase Bank, located at 59-26 Woodside Ave., just after 11 a.m.

Police say he slipped a note to the bank teller demanding money. One employee, however, hit the alarm button, causing the man to flee.

The thief then made his way to a Capital One bank at 115-20 Jamaica Avenue, where he approached the teller just after 1 p.m. with a note demanding money.

The bank teller complied, and gave him more than $17,000, police say.

The suspect is described as white, between 40 to 50 years old, and approximately 6 feet tall. He was last seen wearing a blue jacket, blue jeans, and white Nike sneakers.

Anyone with information on the case is asked to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). Submit tips at WWW.NYPDCRIMESTOPPERS.COM, or text 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls are strictly confidential.

Don’t you know that all bank robbers are white as well as serial killers. Anyway, I never heard of so many bank robberies in Queens! The banks need armed guards or off duty NYPD.
