Police are looking for three men wanted for hitting up three banks across Queens over the past two weeks.

The thieves allegedly targeted banks in Glendale, Jamaica Hills and Woodhaven between Dec. 26 and Wednesday, Jan 3, cops said.

The most recent incident took place at around 11:30 a.m. on Jan. 3, when the three men targeted the Chase bank branch located at 51-15 Metropolitan Ave. in Glendale.  According to police, one of the men acted as a lookout, while the two other men approached a teller window and passed a note demanding cash, police said. They allegedly got spooked and left the bank empty-handed running off westbound on Troutman Avenue.

One day earlier, two of the men targeted a Citibank located at 89-50 164th St. in Jamaica Hills within the confines of the 103rd Precinct. After entering just after noon on Tuesday, Jan. 2, one of the men passed a note to a teller demanding cash but instead grabbed approximately $1,800 in cash from a customer who was depositing cash at the bank, police said. The suspects fled the location on foot, traveling southbound on Guy R. Brewer Boulevard.

The men fled the bank on foot traveling northbound on 95th Street toward Woodhaven Boulevard.

There were no injuries stemming from any of the robberies.
