The suspect entered the branch, located at 35-36 154th St., at approximately 2:20 p.m. and handed a  note to a teller demanding money. However, the man lost his nerve and fled the bank when another teller walked over to read the note.

The police have released video footage of the man.

Anyone with information in regard to 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).
