Wanted: Brooklyn Bank Robber
A bank robber has recently hit two Capital One branches in Brooklyn, and cops want your help finding him.
The New York Police Department says the suspected perp (pictured here), walked into the Williamsburg bank, at 185 Broadway, around 5:41 p.m. on Dec. 29. He demanded cash and then fled on foot. He didn't get any money.
The second time, he's said to have pulled the same ruse at the Capital One located at 856 Washington Avenue, in Prospect Heights, on Dec. 30 around 4:30 p.m. This time, though, he managed to get some green before fleeing.
Cops describe the alleged robber as a 5 foot 7 to 5 foot 10, 250-pound black male, between ages 20 and 39. He was last seen wearing a blue hooded sweatshirt, black ski cap, plaid scarf, black pea coat, blue jeans, and black sneakers.
