Police are asking for help finding a man they say held up seven Manhattan banks, including five of them Friday.

Officials say the man, shown in a surveillance photo above, started at a Chase Bank on 96th Street and Broadway and worked his way downtown, ending at a Capital One on 38th Street and Fifth Avenue.

In each case, they say he pretends to have a gun and demands money.

The first two robberies happened April 12, according to police.

Police say the suspect got away from four banks with money, but left three banks empty handed.

The robber is described as being around 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a dark leather jacket and a gray New York Jets shirt.

Anyone with information on the case should contact the Crime Stoppers hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS, or text CRIMES and then enter TIP577, or visit www.nypdcrimestoppers.com.
