A man robbed an East Flatbush bank in broad daylight on Wednesday, and law enforcement needs some help finding and identifying the suspect.
According to police, the alleged robber walked into a TD Bank at 1623 Flatbush Ave. wearing a black baseball cap and carrying a paper CVS Pharmacy bag at 5:17 p.m. He approached the counter and demanded the teller give him some money.
The teller complied and handed the man $560 in cash. Money in hand, the thief turned and fled onto Flatbush Avenue heading toward Brooklyn College.
No one was injured in the incident, according to police, but the man is still on the loose. Cops described the suspect as 50-60 years old, bald, and of medium build. He was last seen wearing a tan long-sleeve shirt with a multi-colored design on the front, blue sweat pants, black sneakers and a black hat, and carrying the paper CVS bag.
