Man Tries to Rob Three Los Feliz Banks in One Day: LAPD

A lone robber hit three banks in a one-hour span in Los Feliz Thursday afternoon, police said.

The man walked into the first bank about 1 p.m. in the 1600 block of North Vermont Avenue, where he handed a "threatening note" to the teller, LAPD Detective Bret Richard said.

The man left without any money, changed his shirt and walked to another bank, Richard said.

He went to the next bank about 1:40 p.m. in the 4500 block of Franklin Avenue, where he gave the teller a note, but again got no money, police said.

The man then walked to a third bank about 2 p.m. in the 1900 block of Hillhurst Avenue, where he got money before fleeing, police said.
