Authorities say they are searching for a man who attempted to rob three banks over the course of an hour in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Los Feliz on Thursday, KNBC reports.

According to an LAPD spokesperson, the thief began his crime spree by entering a Chase Bank branch at around 1:10 p.m. and handing the teller a “threatening note.”

He then left without money, changed his shirt and tried to rob a Bank of America about 30 minutes later, also unsuccessfully, police said.

Finally, at around 2 p.m., the suspect entered a Citibank, where he was allegedly able to get money before fleeing.

KABC reports that at all the banks, which are located less than a mile from each other, the seemingly unarmed man approached a teller alone with a note demanding money.
