What a shady character!

Police say this sunglasses-sporting goon is the mystery man who swiped $7,000 from a Windsor Terrace bank on March 3.

Cops say that the five-foot-nine, 200-pound man — who sports dreadlocks that peek out from his knit-cap — entered the Sovereign Bank branch on Prospect Park West between Prospect Avenue and Windsor Place at 1:20 pm and slipped a threatening note to an unsuspecting teller.

Investigators did not disclose what was written, but it must have been pretty persuasive: The teller quickly handed over all the cash in her drawer.

The thief ran off and remains at large.

Anyone with information regarding this man’s identity is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-8477 or by visiting the Crime Stoppers website. Police say that all calls will be kept confidential.
