New York parole officers have apprehended a Uniondale man wanted for robbing three banks in four days this month, including two robberies four hours apart on the same day, Nassau County police said.

Robert Davidson was arrested Thursday and charged with robbery and violation of parole. He previously has served several prison terms for robberies dating back to the 1990s, records show.

Police said the 56-year-old gave a note demanding money to a teller at TD Bank on Merrick Road in Rockville Centre and fled with cash at 2:15 p.m. Jan. 10.

Three days later, he allegedly used the same method to rob Capital One Bank on Merrick Road in Merrick shortly before noon Jan. 13 and Capital One Bank on Franklin Avenue in Garden City at 3:37 p.m. the same day.

Witnesses described Davidson as wearing a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap, dark hooded jacket, scarf and jeans at the time of the robberies.

He will be arraigned in First District Court in Hempstead on Friday.
