The woman pictured at left robbed this Queens County Savings Bank in Woodhaven on Friday, Jan. 6.

Cops are searching for a woman who swiped thousands of dollars in cash from a bank in Woodhaven last Friday afternoon.

Police said the heist took place at 5:35 p.m. on Jan. 6 inside the Queens County Savings Bank located at 80-35 Jamaica Ave. near Forest Parkway.

According to authorities, the suspect — described as a black female standing 5 foot 5 inches tall, weighing 120 pounds with facial hair, brown eyes and wearing eyeglasses, red pants with a checkerboard pattern, a black coat, black shoes and a black hooded sweatshirt — approached the counter and passed a white plastic shopping bag and a demand note to the teller.

The employee emptied a drawer and placed approximately $4,298 in cash in the bag, police said. After receiving the bag back, the bandit fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 102nd Precinct responded to the robbery; there were no injuries reported.

At this time, police do not believe the heist was linked to a Jan. 4 robbery in Glendale in which a reported female bandit swiped thousands of dollars in cash from a Ridgewood Savings Bank on Myrtle Avenue.

Anyone with information regarding the Woodhaven heist 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.
