The police are looking for a man who entered a Bank of America branch on Queens Boulevard last week with the intention to rob it–but got cold feet before carrying out the crime.
The suspect walked into the 89-01 Queens Blvd branch at about 11:10 a.m., March 22, and proceeded to get in line to see the teller.
When the branch manager greeted the man while the suspect was in line, he observed the man had a note on a white piece of paper that read: “Give Money.” The note was written with a green marker.
The suspect allegedly got spooked by the manager and fled the bank before he spoke to the teller. No verbal demands were made by the suspect and there were no injuries, according to police.
The man had a stolen white Honda with Pennsylvania license plates parked outside and drove off, according to police.
The suspect is white and is described as being 6 foot 3 inches tall and weighing 180 pounds. He was wearing a hoodie, a blue surgical mask, a tan baseball cap, and a blue jacket at the time of the incident.
No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information is asked to call the NYPD Major Case Squad at 646-610-6910. All calls are confidential.
