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.

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.
