Cops need the public’s help in tracking down a bandit who wore a scarf over his face while robbing a bank in Glendale on Monday morning.

Police said the caper took place just before 10:30 a.m. on May 15 inside the Capital One Bank located at 83-24 Woodhaven Blvd., near Myrtle Avenue.

According to law enforcement sources, the suspect — described as a white male in his 20s or 30s standing 6 feet tall and weighing 160 pounds with brown hair and wearing gray sweat pants and a black baseball cap — approached the counter and handed a demand note to the teller. The perpetrator wore a scarf over his face to conceal his identity.

Seconds later, authorities said, the employee handed $1,000 in cash to the suspect, who then fled the scene on foot eastbound on Myrtle Avenue.

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

Anyone with information regarding the robbery or the bandit’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.
