A man walked into a bank in Astoria Tuesday as part of a failed attempt to rob it.

The suspect, police say, entered the Santander Bank branch at 37-10 Broadway at around 3:50 p.m. and handed a note to a teller demanding cash.

The man, who was not armed, also verbally abused several of the employees at the bank, although a police spokesperson was unsure what he exactly uttered.

The teller did not comply with the suspect’s demand for cash, and the man then fled the branch on foot empty-handed.

Police describe the suspect as being light-skinned and in his 30s. He is believed to be around 6 feet tall with short black hair. The NYPD has yet to release video footage or photos of the suspect.

There were no injuries reported.

The NYPD has yet to release video footage or photos of the suspect. That’s because the 114th precinct is lazy. Bank has surveillance cameras. I guess they are waiting for an actual robbery before they do any work. Largest and laziest police force in the nation.


I don’t understand why the police have to chase these parasites if they are gonna be let go by the DA and the “honorable” judges backed by self-satisfying politicians.
