Double whammy! Williamsburg bank robbed twice in three days

This bank can’t catch a break.

Two different crooks tried to hold up the same Williamsburg bank within three days of each other — but only one walked away with some loot, while the other shuffled out empty-handed.

A bandit wearing a beige mask and white gloves walked into the Grand Street bank near Bushwick Avenue on Nov. 30 at 2:40 pm and passed a note to the window teller, threatening to shoot someone unless she forked over the money in her drawer, according to a police report.

The marauder made off with $1,500 and took back his note before fleeing in an unknown direction, cops said.

Another robber then tried to pull the same move on Dec. 2 at 5:50 pm. The teller told police the villain approached the window and passed a note stating there was a bomb in the lobby and demanding $50,000. But when she showed the scofflaw her empty cash drawer, he simply demanded his note back and fled, police said.
