    Hakim Salam, accused of robbing a Wallingford bank twice in two months last year and robbing a Middletown bank in January, is facing new charges out of Wallingford in connection with another bank robbery.

    The New Haven man accused of robbing two Wallingford banks in two months is facing new charges for a third robbery that happened in 2011.

    Hakim Salam, 48, of New Haven, was charged with third-degree larceny, conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny, second-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit second-degree robbery.

    Salam is accused of robbing the TD Bank at 7 North Turnpike Road on March 15, 2011.

    Investigators identified him as the suspect after Salam was arrested for reportedly robbing the First Niagara Bank on Main Street twice in two months last year.

    He was charged in the 2011 robbery while in custody on charges stemming from a Middletown bank robbery in January of this year, along with the two other Wallingford robberies.

    Salam will be arraigned later Thursday afternoon. He's being held on $50,000 bond.
