We’re told that the number of local bank robberies is down this year — 159 versus 244 this time last year. Nonetheless they’re still happening and one went down Thursday morning at the Bank of America at Broadway near 107th Street. The suspect, pictured, is believed to be in his 30s, and 5’9″ or 5’10”. The hospital scrubs he was wearing may have been meant to facilitate a quick clothing change, or else hospital workers are paid worse than we thought.
If you have information as to this man or this incident, NYPD asks you to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477), www.nypdcrimestoppers.com, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
