Police continue to search for a suspect who robbed a bank in Bayside Thursday morning.
NYPD helicopters and authorities from the 111th Precinct responded to the scene after an individual robbed an Atlantic Bank branch on 41-11 Bell Blvd., near the Bayside Long Island Rail Road station, at 10:33 a.m. on Jan. 12.
The suspect approached the 50-year-old bank teller and passed a note demanding money. The bank teller complied and the individual fled the scene on foot in the direction of Northern Boulevard with an undetermined amount of money and a dye pack — an incendiary device used by banks to permanently mark cash after a robbery.
There were no reported injuries during the incident.
The suspect is described as a white male, approximately 40 to 50 years old, 5 foot 10 inches, 200 pounds with a tattoo on his neck. He was last seen wearing blue jeans, a black hat, red hoodie and black jacket.
Photos of the suspect can be seen below.
Authorities on the scene said police have an idea of who the suspect is. The investigation is ongoing.
