A suspected serial bank robber is under arrest Tuesday after he was spotted by police monitoring a surveillance camera at Washington Square Park.

Police say they recognized 51-year-old Djamil Azizi because of his distinctive mustache and his height - he is 6-foot-2.

Azizi is charged with robbing the Chase Bank at 19th Street and Third Avenue in Manhattan on April 9.

The NYPD says he also tried and failed to rob a bank in Chelsea twice before after apparently getting cold feet and fleeing the scene.
