A brazen bank robber walked off with $7,000 after slipping a threatening note to an unsuspecting Windsor Terrace bank teller this afternoon.
Cops say that the thief entered the Sovereign Bank branch on Prospect Park West between Prospect Avenue and Windsor Place at 1:20 pm and handed over his note.
Investigators did not disclose what was written, but it must have been pretty persuasive: The teller quickly handed over everything in her cash drawer.
The thief ran off without harming anyone and remained at large by Thursday afternoon.
