A man who obtained the bank information of a 28-year-old female made an unauthorized withdrawal of nearly $650 from the woman’s account at an Astoria ATM last month, according to the NYPD.
The alleged perpetrator, described as having a beard and wearing a dark colored jacket, made the unauthorized withdrawal at the ATM inside the Investors Bank branch located at 23-02 31st Street at about 8:25 pm Thursday, Jan. 28, according to police.
The suspect withdrew the funds with a card—although the victim had her debit card in her possession at the time of the transaction, police said.
Anyone with information in regards to this incident is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
