Police in New York said they arrested a bank robber who targeted the same downtown branch on three consecutive days.

“Maybe a handful of times I’ve heard of a guy come back a few weeks later,” said a police source.

“I’ve never heard of a guy come back two days in a row, let alone three.”

Charles Burnett, 29, of Teaneck, N.J., stole more than $26,000 from the Sovereign Bank branch on Gold Street on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Burnett was arrested by a pair of police officers passing by the bank as he exited following his Wednesday robbery.

“They tackled him today as I was coming in,” said teller Danielle Stephens, 25, who was also present during Tuesday’s robbery.

“He ran out onto Gold Street and they tackled him.

“Same guy, three days in a row,” Stephens said. “Obviously he wanted to get caught. He didn’t seem like he was all there.”

Burnett was charged with three counts of robbery.
