Man Tries, Fails to Rob Bank in Bay Ridge

A man with little of the je ne sais quoi possessed by the suited robber from yesterday tried and failed to rob a bank in Bay Ridge on Monday. The man, whose outfit of jeans and a sweatshirt simply doesn't cut it in comparison to the Midtown robber's natty suit, passed a note demanding money to the teller at a bank off of Bay Ridge Parkway. Instead of complying, the teller simply got up and walked away from her seat. The guy, who did not have a Plan B, had no choice but to leave.

And for some reason, the police are searching for this clearly un-dangerous un-criminal. We couldn't get much more info from DCPI though, seeing as they hung up on us.

But we'll help: the suspect is described as being 35 to 40 years-old, approximately 5'8" and 40 140 (LOL typos) pounds, wearing blue jeans, a white baseball cap, and a two-toned sweatshirt with gray and navy blue sleeves. If you know anything, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS (8477), submit a tip by logging onto Crime Stoppers' website at or text CRIMES (274637), then enter TIP577.
