A would-be bank robber left empty-handed from a financial institution in Jamaica Monday afternoon, after a teller took little note of his threats.

According to police, the would-be bank robber entered the Chase Bank on 175-62 Hillside Ave. around 12:15 p.m. He approached the bank teller and then passed a note demanding money. When the bank teller walked away to alert a co-worker, the suspect fled the location strapped for cash.

Police describe the man as 30 to 35 years old, standing 5 foot 5 inches to 5 foot 8 inches tall, with brown eyes and black hair. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and grey shorts.

Anyone with information regarding this botched bank robbery  is asked to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 888-57-PISTA (74782). The public can also submit their tips by logging onto the Crime Stoppers website or by texting their tips to 274637 (CRIMES) then enter TIP577. All calls and messages are kept confidential.
