Police on Long Island are looking for a man caught on camera attempting to rob a bank, and authorities believe he may have hit another bank on the same day.

The above image was taken from a camera at the Chase Bank on Woodbury Road in Plainview on Tuesday afternoon.

It shows the suspect handing a teller a note, which allegedly demanded cash.

Police say he left empty handed.

They believe the same suspect robbed a TD Bank in South Huntington 40 minutes later.

Witnesses described the suspect as a 6-foot tall man wearing blue jeans, sunglasses and a white Nike baseball cap.

Detectives are requesting anyone with information regarding this crime to contact the Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS. All calls are confidential and all callers will remain anonymous.
