FLUSHING — Police were looking for a man they said robbed seven banks scattered throughout the city since January.

The suspect’s most recent known robbery was at the Flushing Savings Bank on Roosevelt Avenue, police said.

As he had done in the six other cases, the man entered the bank and demanded cash from the teller before fleeing with an undetermined amount of money, police said.

Police described the suspect as black, 25 years old, 5-foot-9 and weighing 160 pounds.

Anyone with information in regards to any of these robberies is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS. Those with information should contact NYPD’s Crimestoppers by calling 1-800-577-TIPS (8477), visiting its website or texting 274637 (CRIMES) and entering TIP577.
