Police want help identifying the guy who robbed an Investors Bank on Third Avenue in Bay Ridge on Dec. 7.
The man walked into the bank on the corner of 72nd Street at 2:40 pm and demanded dough, police said. He threatened to “start shooting” if he did not get what he wanted, although it’s not clear whether he had a gun, officials said. Bank employees handed over $6,400 in cash, and the man took off on foot with the loot, law enforcement sources said.
Cops believe the man to be in his 40s standing 5-foot-3. A still from bank security footage shows him wearing a red hoodie — hood up — and black jacket.
Someone called in a bomb threat at a TD Bank on Fifth Avenue around noon on the same day as the Investors Bank robbery, although police have not said if there was a connection between the two incidents. That TD Bank is the same bank an armed robber — who remains at large — hit for $3,000 on Nov. 14. Police are asking anyone with information regarding the incident to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577–8477. The public can also submit tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website at www.nypdc
