A United Nations employee has been arrested over a string of New York bank robberies he allegedly committed while on his lunch break.

Abdullahi Shuaibu, 53, was arrested at the UN offices in Manhattan on Monday when he returned to work after allegedly trying to rob a HSBC bank nearby.

Police said Shuaibu opted to stay close to the UN headquarters when he allegedly robbed three banks in February and March and stole $10,000.

 

Shuaibu was caught on his fourth heist after a retired UN worker recognized him from a wanted photo released by police.

Police claim Shuaibu would pass a note to the teller in the alleged robberies saying he had a gun and demanding cash, NBC reports. 

Surveillance images released by police show Shuaibu talking on a cell phone and wearing white-tipped gloves while allegedly carrying out the robberies. 

Police were waiting to arrest him at the UN's Foreign Press Centers on Monday.
