Bronx Bank Robber on the Run
A man held up a Chase Bank in the Bronx on Saturday, and cops are now asking for your help finding him.
Authorities say that the suspected perp (pictured here) walked into the branch, located at 1489 Metropolitan Avenue, around 1:20 p.m. then went up to a teller, demanded money, and fled with some cash.
It's unclear whether the suspect had a weapon, but cops say that the man in question is a 5-foot-9, 240-pound white male. The guy, described as looking about 50-years-old, was last seen wearing a black winter hat, black jeans, a dark blue jacket, and grey sneakers, police say.
