He had his fingers in the till — all five of them.

Police are hunting for three bank robbers, one of whom is identifiable by the fact that he has only five fingers, police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said.

The suspects are wanted in connection with two separate San Francisco robbery series, Andraychak said.

On April 30, a bank in the 300 block of Clay Street was robbed about 11:30 a.m. The suspect was described as a 40- to 50-year-old white man, 5-foot-10 and 160 to 170 pounds, Andraychak said. The bandit typically wears a large-brimmed sun hat and black hooded sweatshirt.

He is suspected in several bank robberies in The City, Andraychak said, and also a Monday heist in Greenbrae. The crook typically presents a demand note, but on one occasion he showed a handgun.

Police also are seeking his five-fingered accomplice, who helped in a Marina district bank robbery Saturday, Andraychak said. The two men robbed a bank near Chestnut and Fillmore streets about 3:15 p.m.

The accomplice is described as a 45- to 50-year-old white man, 5-foot-5 and 165 pounds, police said. He was last seen wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark jacket.

He is missing three fingers from his right hand and two from his left, Andraychak said.

In a second series of robberies unrelated to the others, police said they are seeking a man who robbed a bank in the unit block of Front Street about 10 a.m. May 10.

That suspect is described as a black man in his 40s, 5-foot-9 and 160 to 180 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black, curly wig and eyeglasses, police said. He is believed to be responsible for several Financial District-area bank robberies.

Anyone with information on the bandits can contact police at (415) 575-4444 or by text to TIP411.
