This paper presents a low profile multiband Microstrip Patch Antenna with an interlaced  nine slots for 5G millimeter wave communication. The strucutre is built on a Rodger 3003 substrate having dielectric constant of 3 and loss tangent of 0.0010. The proposed design resonates at multiband mmwave frequencies i.e. 28GHz, 52GHz and 60GHz offering a bandwidth of 1.04GHz, 1.2GHz and 1.1GHz and radiation efficiency of  93.6%, 88% ,84% respectively at each resonant frequency.The return loss is -16.8dB at 28GHz, -16.1dB at 52GHz and -52dB at 60GHz.The antenna is imprinted on a Rodger 3003 substrate having dielectric constant of 3.0 and loss tangent of .0010.The single element maintains a compact size of 10x10x.324mm3.The 2x4 Array configuration has an overall volume of 28 x 16 x 0.324mm3 with an enhanced maximum achieved gain of 15.2dB at 27GHz, 12.4dB at 39GHz and 13.3dB at 60GHz. The proposed array arrangement has a return loss of -22dB at 27GHz, -32dB at 39GHz, and -35.01dB at 60GHz spot frequency. The array exhibits a maximum radiation efficiency of 92% at 27GHz.
