Cops are hunting for the letter-writing robber who held up Park Slope and Sheepshead Bay banks in a spree that began on Jan. 16.

The crook struck in the Slope first, entering a Capital One bank on Fifth Avenue between 12th and 13th streets at 11:51 am before passing a teller a note demanding cash, police said.

The employee acquiesced, handing over an unspecified amount, and the weasel fled, according to a report.

The baddie then showed up at a Chase bank on Avenue U between E. 17th and E. 18th streets in the Bay, where he slipped another message to an employee around 2:25 pm, authorities said.

That teller did not pony up any green, however, and the snake fled empty-handed, according to a report.

Officials described the suspect as about 30-years-old, six-feet tall, and approximately 200 pounds.

The Slope holdup followed no less than four other robberies at banks across North Brooklyn since the start of the year, three of which involved other note-passing fiends.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdcrimestoppers.com or by texting tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then entering TIP577. All tips are strictly confidential.
