The suspect behind a failed robbery attempt at this Citibank branch in Elmhurst earlier this month.

The NYPD released a security camera image of a suspect who failed in his quest to rob an Elmhurst bank earlier this month.

Authorities said the caper occurred at 2:20 p.m. on Sept. 9 inside the Citibank located at 87-11 Queens Blvd., adjacent to Queens Place shopping center.

 

According to police, the perpetrator walked into the branch, approached the counter and handed a teller a demand note. Seconds later, the suspect fled the location empty-handed.

The incident was reported to the 110th Precinct; no injuries were reported, and no money was missing.

Police describe the suspect as a Hispanic male between 30 and 35 years of age with a light complexion, standing 5 foot 9 inches tall and weighing 170 pounds. He was last seen wearing a blue baseball hat, a striped shirt, blue jeans and black sneakers.

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