The NYPD is looking for a man wearing a postal uniform who robbed two banks in Queens.
Police say the man walked into a Capital One bank at 9:01 a.m. Monday, handed the teller a note and brandished a gun, then made off with an undisclosed amount of money. Police believe the same person robbed a second Capital One bank nearby 10 minutes later. He showed off a gun the second time and made off with more cash.
The suspect was described as a man wearing glasses and a postal uniform. It's not clear if the suspect was a U.S. Postal Service employee or if he was just wearing a uniform as a disguise.
