'White glove bandit' pleads guilty to robbing two LES banks
The so-called "White Glove Bandit' pleaded guilty Tuesday to knocking over two Lower East Side banks earlier this year, officials said.
Michael McManus, 43, of Manhattan, pleaded guilty to four counts of bank robbery for hitting an HSBC and a Citibank branch twice each between January and April this year.
He faces a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison on each count. His sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 13.
McManus earned his moniker by approaching the bank tellers wearing white gloves and sunglasses. In each robbery he showed the teller a gun (which turned out to be fake) then demanded money, officials said.
