Have You Seen… Failed Hipster Bank Robber


Another guy tried to rob a bank Wednesday. Around 12:35 p.m. this man went into the BoA at 150 Broadway, passed a note, got no money for his trouble, and fled. Witnesses say he’s 30-40 years old, 5′ 6″, and about 175 pounds, and as you’ll see from the photo, he appears to have arrived at the bank dressed like Pete Wentz.

NYPD reminds you that even trying to rob a bank is a serious crime, and asks anyone with information as to this man or this incident to contact 1-800-577-TIPS(8477),, or text 274637 (CRIMES), then enter TIP577.
