Nassau County police have released new information about the man suspected to be responsible for eight bank robberies in the last 12 months.

The suspect allegedly committed many of the robberies in broad daylight, with employees and customers present.

Authorities say the spree stared in November 2016, and that the suspect always hands the teller a note, demanding cash and threatening to hurt people if the teller does not comply.

The suspect's most recent robbery happened Tuesday at a Bank of America branch in Westbury. Police say he handed the teller a note demanding cash, but took off without any money. Ninety minutes later, the suspect entered a Chase Bank branch in Elmont, giving the teller another note and left with an unknown amount of money.

Since last November, police say the suspect has committed robberies at four banks in Hempstead, the Bank of America on Post Avenue in Westbury, and has held up the same Chase Bank branch on Linden Boulevard in Elmont three times.

According to authorities, the suspect is still at large, and they are unsure if he is working alone.
