Police are searching for a man who they said robbed two banks, one in Richmond Hill and another in South Richmond Hill, on Sunday.
Officers from the 106th Precinct first responded to a robbery at the Chase bank at 103-48 Lefferts Blvd at 9:20 a.m. Sunday. Upon arrival, the police were informed that a black male who was approximately 30 years old approached the counter and passed the teller a note. The note stated, “put the money in the bag,” and the man instructed her to give him the cash. The perpetrator then walked away from the county and exited the bank. No weapon was displayed during the incident.
At 9:25 a.m. Sunday, officers responded to another bank robbery, this time at 121-11 Liberty Ave. The NYPD said they were given the same description of the perpetrator, and bank workers again said they were passed a note demanding cash be placed in the bag. Again, the thief walked out of the bank and no weapon was shown during the incident.
Anyone with information about the robberies should immediately call the 106th Precinct at (718) 845-2211.
