Police are looking for a man who robbed a Forest Hills bank Friday morning, just minutes after allegedly failing to rob another bank nearby.

The suspect entered Capital One located at 107-18 71 Avenue at around 9:45 am, approached the 24-year-old female bank teller and passed a note demanding money. The teller complied and the suspect fled the location with an undetermined amount of cash, according to police.

The robbery came just 10 minutes after the suspect allegedly struck the Queens County Savings Bank at 107-40 Queens Boulevard and failed. On this occasion, the suspect passed a note to a 64-year-old female bank teller who refused to give him money.

The suspect was described in both incidents as Hispanic, light complexion, 5’10”, 150 lbs., black hair, brown eyes, last seen wearing beige shorts and a blue shirt.

Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS
