A note-carrying bandit robbed this bank in Howard Beach on Monday afternoon.

Using a demand note, a bandit made off with a bundle of cash from a Howard Beach bank during a heist Monday afternoon, according to police.

The NYPD later released a security camera image of the suspect who visited the New York Community Bank located on Cross Bay Boulevard near 156th Avenue at 12:59 p.m. Monday.

Authorities said the perpetrator — described as a white male between 25 and 35 years of age, standing 5 foot 6 inches tall who was wearing a red hooded sweatshirt, dark tinted glasses and gloves — approached a teller and provided a note demanding cash.

Seconds later, the employee provided him with $2,200 in cash; the crook then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 106th Precinct responded to the robbery; there were no reported injuries.

Anyone with information regarding the heist or the suspect’s whereabouts is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 800-577-TIPS (for Spanish speakers, dial 888-57-PISTA), visit their website or send a text message to 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
