FOREST HILLS – Police were looking for a suspect who has robbed the same bank in the 112th Precinct twice in the same seven-day period.

The suspect entered the Chase Bank at 100-26 Queens Blvd. Feb. 22 at about 11 a.m. and handed the teller a note demanding cash. The teller complied and the man left with an undetermined amount of money, police said.

At 8:35 a.m. Monday, the same suspect revisited the same Forest Hills bank, handed a note to the teller and left with about $3,000, according to NYPD.

Police described the man as white and in his mid-30s. He stands approximately 5-foot-9 and weighs about 175 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and black dress shoes.
