Detectives continue to search for the failed bandit who was turned down in his bid to rob a bank in Ozone Park Wednesday afternoon.

Police said the attempted robbery occurred at 1:20 p.m. on April 27 inside the Chase bank located at 103-48 Lefferts Blvd.

According to authorities, the suspect — described as a black male wearing a black jacket — walked into the branch, approached a teller at the counter and handed over a demand note.
