Over the weekend, the police asked for the public's help in finding a suspect who had robbed an East Village Chase bank on Saturday, describing him as a "white male (possibly albino)." Now it turns out that the same suspect is accused of robbing two other Manhattan banks on Monday/em>.
According to police, at about 2:41 p.m., the suspect "entered the Citibank Branch located at 1107 Broadway [at 24th Street]. The suspect then handed a demand note to the teller. The teller complied and the suspect fled the location with $600.00."
Then, at 3:22 p.m., he "entered the Chase Bank Branch located at 835 Broadway. The suspect then handed a demand note to the teller. The teller complied and the suspect fled the location with $4,740.00."
Police released another photograph of the suspect on a subway platform, along with a video:
After the first incident on Saturday, police described the suspect as "white male (possibly albino), 5'10", mid to late 20s, light colored hair with a medium build. He was last seen wearing a black and grey jacket, dark rimmed glasses, black sneakers with a red bandana around his neck." The additional photograph and video show he's wearing a similar, if not the same, outfit.
