Police Seek Note Job Bank Robber

Detectives from the NYPD’s major case squad are looking for the man pictured here for bank robbery in connection with the incident at the new Chase bank branch at Arverne by the Sea on May 18.

The still-unidentified man passed a note indicating that he had a gun and walked away with an unspecified amount of cash, police officials say.

The man, in his 30s according to police, and wearing a Yankee hat and an orange contractor’s vest, walked into the new Chase branch at 68-20 Rockaway Beach Boulevard at about 10:23 a.m. and handed the teller a note that said he had a gun and would use it if she did not give him cash.

The gun was never seen, however, police say.

After getting the cash, the man calmly walked out of the bank and fled towards Beach 69 Street. Officials think he may have dumped the vest and jumped on the A Train line directly behind the bank.

Detective Patrick Curran from the Queens Major Case Squad is investigating. Anybody with information is urged go call the detective at 646-610- 6910 or the 100 Precinct Detective Squad at 718-318-4266.
