A bank robber wearing a Jets jersey hit five Manhattan banks in the span of an hour Friday, police say.

The robber began his spree just before 1 p.m., at a Chase bank on Broadway on the Upper West Side. About 20 minutes later, he hit another Chase bank nearby.

He moved on to a Capital One bank in Midtown on 57th Street about 15 minutes later, and then a Bank of America down the block just seven minutes after that.

About 20 minutes after that, he hit a Capital One bank on Fifth Avenue, police say.

The robber was not armed, and in each case passed a note to the teller demanding money.

Two of the robberies were successful and three were not, police say.
