Hat-Loving Robber Is Terrorizing City Banks In Harlem

May 19, 2017

He’s throwing his hat into the ring as the Big Apple’s most wanted chapeau-wearing bank robber.

On the heels of the arrest of the ballcap-loving Coast to Coast bandit, police announced Thursday that they’re now on the hunt for another serial robber, who has so far successfully ripped off four Manhattan banks — each time wearing a series of different hats.

In each of the incidents, the suspect, who also wears sunglasses, passes a note to a teller demanding cash.

He last struck on Wednesday when he walked into a Chase Bank on Fifth Avenue in Harlem and passed a note to a male employee around 3:50 p.m.

The teller refused to cooperate and the suspect ran out empty-handed, police said.

The spree started on January 28, 2017 when he walked into the same bank and successfully stole an undetermined amount of cash.

Since then, he had robbed several other banks in Harlem and other parts of Upper Manhattan, including one heist on Feb. 13 when he stole more than $3,000 from a Chase Bank on Broadway and W. 144th St. He struck out at three other banks, cops said.

The suspect is described as being in his 30s or 40s, police said.

Jon Paul Waulters, accused of robbing banks in LA and New York while alternating between Yankees and Mets hats, was busted on Wednesday.
