Authorities said the teller handed over $1,000 in cash to the suspect, who then fled the scene on foot in an unknown direction.

Officers from the 104th Precinct responded to the incident; no injuries were reported.

Police described the bandit as a white man between 25 and 30 years old with a light complexion and a beard; he was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and a black coat.
