Police say a fast-moving bank robber hit three Queens banks in the span of roughly an hour Saturday.

According to police, the first hold-up happened around 9 a.m. Saturday at a Chase Bank in Richmond Hill.

Police say the man passed a note demanding money, but the teller refused, and he fled empty-handed.

A similar incident happened just six minutes later, according to police, when a teller at a nearby Citibank ignored a note demanding cash from the same man.

According to police, the robber finally hit paydirt at an Astoria Federal Savings Bank in Jamaica, when a worker there surrendered $3,300.

The suspect is described as being in his 20s or 30s, 6 feet tall, weighing 185 to 200 pounds.

He was last seen wearing black sunglasses, a tan top and a black lumberjack-style hat.

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 ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
