This Ridgewood Savings Bank on Myrtle Avenue in Glendale was robbed on Jan. 4.

A bank robber didn’t mince words when she went to rob a Glendale bank on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

Law enforcement sources said the crook came calling to the Ridgewood Savings Bank located at 65-01 Myrtle Ave. at about 3:24 p.m. on Jan. 4.

According to authorities, the thief  described as a Hispanic female standing 5 foot 7 inches tall and weighing about 140 pounds who was seen wearing a black knit hat, a black jacket and red flannel pants  passed a note to a teller announcing a robbery and that the worker should “put the money in the bag … b—-!”

No weapons were displayed during the robbery attempt, law enforcement sources determined.

The teller complied with the request and handed over more than $6,000 to the suspect, police said. The bandit then fled the scene on foot westbound along Myrtle Avenue.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the scene. There were no injuries.

Police canvassed the surrounding area for the suspect, but no immediate arrests were made, police said. The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information about the robbery is urged 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.
