Police have arrested a suspect they say committed a series of bank robberies in Manhattan.

Investigators identified the man in the above surveillance photo as 40-year-old James Walton.

They say he robbed at least seven banks over the past two months, most recently a Capital One location on Monday.

In every incident, police say Walton passed a note to the teller demanding money, and fled the scene once he received the cash.

Walton had been listed as homeless, and was also wanted in connection with a previous attempted robbery incident in 2011.

He now faces multiple charges of robbery and attempted robbery.
