Police Searching for Would-be Bank Robber


Police are searching for a man that passed a note to a teller demanding money at the Rockville Centre Citibank and then left empty handed.

On Nov. 22 at 11:55 a.m., the subject — described as white, between 5 foot 6 inches and 5 foot 7 inches, 30 to 35 years old with a red beard, medium complexion, medium build and wearing black plastic framed sunglasses, a light blue button down shirt, black jeans and light-colored bandana on his head — entered the bank, located at 297 Merrick Rd.

He walked directly to the tellers’ desk and placed a robbery demand note on the counter, police said. The teller, fearing physical injury, walked from her counter to a manager’s office. The subject, who was at the counter by himself, walked out of the branch without any money. He then used a local taxi service to flee the area and was dropped off in Island Park.

Crime Stoppers is asking anyone who has information about the identity or whereabouts of the above subject to call the toll-free hotline at 1-800-244-TIPS (8477).

Realist, you seem awfully twisted about this. Do you harbor a fear of cab-grabbin, almost-robbers? If you run into him, just tear up his note and point to the All Island Stand.

No, RVC - I'm twisted about shoddy journalism...

Posting whatever info. gets released to you by outside sources is not journalism, and I'm sure these Patch guys/gals aren't making a ton of dough monitoring the sporadic rantings of us eejits on a silly site. I'll give them a pass. Perhaps a fitness regime will help you expend negative energy in a positive way. Now, if you want to talk about the "journalists" over at Newsday that refuse to describe crime perps if they are black...

You still don't get it...The story was two weeks ago and could've been run WITHOUT the description and or picture...That's my point...And again, no negative energy here -just fedup with excuses & stupidity - just like at Sleezeday!!!
