The New York Police Department is searching for a woman suspected of attempting to rob four banks within 40 minutes on Tuesday.
The woman made off with $US3,000 from a Chase Bank shortly before noon, a police spokesperson told Business Insider. Earlier Tuesday, she passed notes to tellers at two other banks, a Bank of America and an Apple Bank, but did not leave the building with any cash.
At a fourth bank, a Capital One, the woman did not pass a note or leave with cash, the spokesperson said.
All four banks are within a half-mile of each other in Lower Manhattan. The incidents occurred between 11:17 a.m. and 11:57 a.m., the spokesperson said.
The suspect, described by police as a black woman, has not been arrested, and an NYPD investigation is still ongoing, the spokesperson said. No other details about the woman were immediately available.
This story is developing.
