A Uniondale man was arrested Thursday on felony charges in connection with a string of bank robberies across Nassau County, police said.

Robert Davidson, 56, will be arraigned Jan. 24 after being charged with three counts of third-degree robbery and three counts of violation of parole.

As reported on Tuesday, investigators were searching for Davidson after identifying him as being wanted for a robbery of a TD Bank branch in Rockville Centre earlier this month.

In that incident, detectives said he took a slip of paper from the counter and wrote a threatening note demanding money. He allegedly told the teller he had a gun and wanted cash.

Detectives also charged Davidson for two additional robberies, including one at a Capital One Bank branch in Merrick and one at a TD Bank in Garden City. Police said he wore a Toronto Blue Jays baseball cap during all three robberies.

Davidson will appear at Nassau First District Court in Hempstead for arraignment.
