The New York City Police Department is seeking assistance from the public in determining the whereabouts of an individual wanted for robbing an Upper West Side bank on Monday.
It took place at about 4:10pm, and the suspect’s target was the Chase Bank at 2540 Broadway, between 95th and 96th streets.
The suspect — pictured below — entered the establishment, approached a teller and slid over a note demanding money.
The teller complied with the request, and the suspect made off with $3,960. He fled the scene northbound on Broadway. No injuries have been reported as a result of this incident.
Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the CrimeStoppers website or by sending a direct message to @NYPDTips on Twitter. All calls are strictly confidential.
I just don’t get how in this day and age, someone can just walk into a NYC bank and just rob it with a note to the teller. Not a first with the UWS Chase branches, their services should include “easy cash access at windows”, except if you are a customer!
