FBI hunting bank robber

The FBI and police are looking for a fedora-wearing bank robber who apparently struck four times in one week, targeting banks on both sides of the Hudson River.

Two banks in New York City and two in northern New Jersey were hit, the FBI said. In each case, the description and video of the robber was very similar.

Authorities said a man robbed the Chase branch at 125 River Street in Hoboken, N.J., on March 19, 2012, by passing a note to a teller.

Then on March 21, someone robbed a Chase branch at 109 Delancey Street in Manhattan, the FBI. A few hours later, a man with a similar description robbed a Capitol One Bank branch at 41-60 Main Street in Queens.

Then on March 22, a robber hit the Chase at 460 Bergen Boulevard in Palisades Park, N.J., the FBI said. After that robbery, the thief dropped a bag of cash, authorities said.

Authorities released security camera images of the suspect in three of the robberies. The FBI describes the suspect as an Asian man in his 20s to mid-30s, between 5 feet 10 inches and 6 feet 2 inches tall, about 170 pounds with a slim build, with short dark hair, and a clean-shaven face. He was wearing black fedora hat, black leather jacket, black framed or pewter framed Ray Ban sunglasses, North Face backpack, and black and white shoes.

If you have any information, call the FBI in New Jersey at 973-792-3000 or in New York at 212-384-1000.
