Police are looking for a man suspected of robbing, or trying to rob, 15 New York City banks.      

The NYPD says the man has walked away with "tens of thousands of dollars'' in the Brooklyn-Queens crime spree.      

It started Dec. 22. The most recent robbery was last Friday at a Chase Bank in Fort Greene. All but one of the heists took place in seven different neighborhoods in Brooklyn, including Park Slope, Sheepshead Bay and Greenpoint. One robbery happened at a Citibank in Ozone Park, Queens.      

The robber disguises himself with a hat, scarf, bandanna or sunglasses.      

Police have released surveillance video. They're urging anyone with information to call the NYPD's Crime Stoppers hotline at (800) 577-TIPS.
